It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
The aims of this session is to enable participants to recognise and engage people who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention.
Successful completion of this course will provide:
• Awareness that people at risk of suicide are often not given help due to cultural myths and misinformation
• The ability to recognise when a person might be having thoughts of suicide
• The skills to be able to engage that person in direct and open talk about suicide
• The ability to move quickly to connect them with someone trained in suicide intervention who can review the risk and develop a plan to reduce the risk of harm or death.
safeTALK is designed to be an introductory course for anyone interested in learning to be suicide aware.
