safeTALK is a half-day alertness training to prepare anyone—regardless of prior experience or training—to become a suicide alert helper. Peer leaders can benefit from this free training as a way of developing new skills and mental health awareness.

TALK is an acronym for Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe

This is open to all TRU students. Everyone will receive a workbook during the course and a certificate at the end of the course.

The workshop emphasizes

  • the importance of recognizing signs of suicidal thoughts
  • communicating with the person at risk
  • getting help or resources for the person at risk.

Learning objectives

  • to move beyond common tendencies to miss clues, dismiss, or avoid suicide
  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • apply the TALK steps to connect someone with suicidal thoughts to first-aid intervention caregivers.
