SafeTALK is a 3.5-hour alertness workshop 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.
Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world. SafeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.
Workshop features include:
- Presentations and guidance from Michael Bambacas a safeTALK registered trainer who delivers programs to animal health and the veterinary sectors.
- Access to support from a local community resource person
- Hands-on skills practice and development
Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
- Define and document project objectives, deliverables, timeframes and resources
- Identify and respond to stakeholder needs
- Manage project scope, task allocation and risk
- Monitor project performance
- Evaluate and report on project outcomes
