safeTALK - Suicide Awareness for Everyone
June 14, 2017 | 12:00 - 3:00 pm
Thoughts of suicide are common – more than 9 million American adults acknowledged having thoughts of suicide when asked that question in 2014. Recognizing and acknowledging risk of suicide is a powerful beginning to help save a life.
safeTALK is a 3 hour training that teaches people not to “miss, dismiss, or avoid” signs of suicidal thinking, effective ways to start the conversation, and provides information to help connect individuals at risk to useful supports and services.
safeTALK is designed for all community members, as any of us in our personal or professional lives may have friends, family members, colleagues, or people with whom we work who are at risk. safeTALK is not recommended for individuals who have completed ASIST training. It is not recommended for individuals who have recently experienced the death of a loved one to suicide.
Course fee: $10 (safeTALK training is supported by NYS)
3 NYS SW CE hours available. Administrative fee: $15
