Suicide Alertness training offered March 10 and 12

Suicide Alertness for Community Members

safeTALK is a 3 1/2-hour training program that prepares helpers to identify persons with
thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first-aid resources. Most people with thoughts
of suicide, either directly or indirectly, invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to
identify and work with these opportunities to help protect life. Powerful videos illustrate both
non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and practice stimulate learning.
Space is limited. Ages 15+. Light refreshments provided.
