Suicide Alertness Training - safeTALK
Next dates: TBA
safeTALK is a three-hour training course conducted by Port Curtis Rotary Club of Gladstone 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 who have thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to identify opportunities to support that desire for safety.
As a safeTALK trained suicide alert helper, you will be able to…
Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide
Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
Apply the TALK steps (tell, ask and keep safe) to connect a person with suicidal thoughts to suicide first-aid and intervention caregivers.
Register your interest by contacting John Whitten on 0410 433 919.
