Events and Training Opportunities

Please check below for all upcoming training and events.

safeTALK trainingSafeTALK is a half day alertness training that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. SafeTALK trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.
