Target Audience: Staff

safeTALK is suicide alertness training for everyone and shows you how to recognise people who may have thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide intervention resources. It prepares participants to activate a suicide alert by following the TALK ( Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep Safe) steps and provide practical help to people with thoughts of suicide. The focus of the training is on positive learning, encouragement of open and honest talk, respect for differences, mutual support and active participation. Evaluation of safeTALK showed participants felt more likely to recognise the signs of someone at risk, to approach the person, ask them directly whether they were having thoughts of suicide and be able to connect them to help. The facilitator will be Shona Straiton a Choose Life trainer from the Scottish Association for Mental Health.
