Upcoming Events

safeTALK

Date:     Friday 20 October 2023

Time:     9.00am - 2.00pm

Venue:  Philip Street Precinct, 1 Pengelly Street, Gladstone

safeTALK is a half-day alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.

Workshop features:

 

  • Presentations and guidance from a LivingWorks registered trainer

  • Access to support from a local community resource person

  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids

  • The simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe

  • Hands-on skills practice and development.
