safeTALK Suicide Prevention Training - PORTICO Wellness

1814 Barbertown Rd Mississauga

From Thursday, November 17 2022 at 12:00 AM until Thursday, November 24 2022 at 03:00 AM

SafeTALK 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
  • apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

Participants need to be 15 years of age or older!
