Use the notice-listen-connect method to support individuals struggling with their mental health
Initiate a strengths-based dialogue about accessing and evaluating mental health resources appropriate for the individual
SafeTALK: 1:00pm-4:00pm ($40.00)

SafeTALK, about three hours in duration, is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.
As a SafeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able 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 suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.
Price includes training, materials, and certificate of completion.
Fostering Mental Wellness: 9:30am-12:30pm ($75.00)
SafeTALK: 1:00pm-4:00pm ($40.00)
Fostering Mental Wellness + SafeTALK Training package (both trainings): $105.00
