safeTALK: Suicide Alertness Training
July 19 @ 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM PDT$35
Suicide Alertness Training For Everyone
Canadian Mental Health Association Shuswap-Revelstoke will provide safeTALK Training as a community initiative to build skills in suicide intervention.
Why take safeTalk Training?
❖ LIFE-SAVING: Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. By connecting friends, family members, colleagues, and students with helping resources, safeTALK participants save lives in their communities.
❖ SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE: safeTALK uses the easy-to-follow TALK Steps – Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe – and includes time to practice them so the knowledge is retained.
❖ TRUSTED: More than 50,000 people attend safeTALK training each year. safeTALK is used in over 20 countries worldwide.
❖ PROVEN: Studies show that safeTALK participants feel more confident asking people about suicide, connecting them with life-saving resources, and keeping them safe until those resources can take over.
If you have been recently affected by suicide and/or loss, we hope you have a strong support network. If you need to reach out prior to this training please connect with Shannon Hecker at CMHA
