safeTALK Training - English

In partnership with Empowerment Essence we are happy to bring you LivingWorks safeTALK 

Suicide Alertness for Everyone certification workshop. This in person, four-hour workshop will empower you and your community to learn and apply new tools in preventing suicides. You will      learn how to prevent suicide by recognizing signs, engaging someone, and connecting them to an intervention resource for further support. Training is available for anyone who is 15 years or older.         

LivingWorks safeTALK trainees learn to recognize when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to an intervention provider, such as a LivingWorks ASIST trainee, crisis hotline, psychiatristtherapist or medical provider. By participating in the workshop, LivingWorks safeTALK trainees build a safety network, and suicide safer communities with intervention providers and partners. This will help increase awareness and impact in communities.  

Like all of LivingWorks' core programs, LivingWorks safeTALK is evidence-based.     One Life Saved Is One Life Given

Light Refreshments will be served in morning and afternoon.
