SafeTALK training event in Boyle
SafeTALK ‘suicide alertness for everyone’ is a half day training programme that prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources.
These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their communities.
Participants learn how to provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide in only a few house.
Following a SafeTALK workshop you will be more than willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.
The training will take place on Thursday May 16th in Boyle Family Resource Centre from 7pm-10pm. Cost is free but booking is essential.
