SafeTALK is a suicide-alertness workshop 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 recognise these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.
Since its development in 2006 by Livingworks safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world.
“Annette was great at explaining and introducing better ways of dealing with people thinking about suicide. Great take-aways that can easily be shared with friends too!”
