safeTALK / 2.5 hours
Recommended for:
  • Any interested community members
  • Parents, friends, neighbors
  • Teachers
  • Ministers
  • Doctors, nurses
  • Office supervisors, caseworkers
  • Firefighters, and many others


Most people with thoughts of suicide "invite" help to stay safe. safeTALK trains participants to become "suicide alert." Alert helpers recognize those "invitations" and know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.


safeTALK participants learn to:

  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid possible warning signs or "invitations"
  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). The KeepSafe step includes connecting the at-risk person to a helper or organization with suicide intervention expertise.


The safeTALK training provides clear and practical information and includes video, discussion and practice. safeTALK is especially appropriate for large organizations dealing with many people on a daily basis, such as emergency services, secondary and post-secondary schools, medical settings, law enforcement and the military.
