SafeTalk Suicide Alertness for everyone

SafeTALK 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.

Upcoming Trainings

Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we are unable to offer any safeTALK Workshops at this time. Please continue to monitor this website for any changes.

Learn life-saving skills anytime, anywhere

In just 90 minutes online, Livingworks Start teaches trainees to recognize when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to help and support.  Visit https://www.livingworks.net/start  for more information
