safeTALK: Suicide Alertness for Everyone
safeTALK is a 4-hour training that prepares participants to identify people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with suicide first aid resources in our community. safeTALK is available to anyone at UTM.
Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. safeTALK-trained alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. Through examples, discussion and practice, you will learn practical steps to help activate a suicide alert that connects people having thoughts of suicide with more specialized intervention care. All participants will receive a safeTALK certification upon completion.
