SafeTALK-trained “suicide alert helpers” are taught how to move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide; identify people who have thoughts of suicide; and apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicidal thoughts to first-aid and intervention caregivers.
Video clips shown at the training illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and practice help stimulate learning. Trainers are certified by Living Works Inc. (www.livingworks.net)
