Course Content

SafeTALK: Suicide Alertness For Everyone is a half-day course that can help you make a difference. The course is made up of carefully crafted set of helpful steps and the use of creative educational processes makes it possible for you leave the session willing and able to be suicide alert helpers.

You will be able to learn how to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. You will learn that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed and avoided.

This training prepares you to be a suicide alert helper by following the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). These steps offer initial help in order to connect people having thoughts of suicide with more specialised support.

SafeTALK is the result of some twenty years of work at learning how to develop useful suicide prevention abilities in a short program.

Each participant receives a resource pack made up of further learning materials, certificate, prompter wallet card, stickers and information about sources of support for people with thoughts of suicide and mental health issues.

Timings & Breaks

The course is 3.5 hours with a short break half-way through.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention Company has over 10 years of experience of delivering training as a provider. They are a small Brighton based charity with a simple but powerful goal: 'that no one should have to contemplate suicide alone.' They work locally and nationally with communities, organisations and individuals, helping them to become ready, willing and able to effectively support someone at risk of suicide. Their training and consultancy helps save lives by enabling the kind of conversations that can really make a difference.
