safeTALK: Suicide Prevention Training

RSVP Here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfdvbanMHGokn7xLCbLqcaE6g0Qgk6nrAx7Pk5HOO5Id_GanQ/viewform
------
SafeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. SafeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST. SafeTALK is designed to create many more suicide alert helpers in the community than intervention helpers and create a suicide safer community.

Your trainer will be UNHS Behavioral Staff member Niki Olsen LCMHC. We know that suicide prevention is something, “Everybody plays a role in.” We believe this training is similar to CPR in the sense that the more people that receive this training the more lives will be saved.
