Description:

safeTALK is an entry-level suicide training that teaches participants to recognize and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. safeTALK stresses safety while challenging taboos that inhibit open talk about suicide. The safeTALK learning process is highly structured, providing graduated exposure to practice actions. The program is designed to help participants monitor the effect of false societal beliefs that can cause otherwise caring and helpful people to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide alerts and to practice the TALK step actions to move past these three barriers. Six 60-90 second video scenarios, each with non-alert and alert clips, are selected from a library of scenarios and strategically used through the training to provide experiential referents for the participants.

Objective:

1.       Challenge attitudes that inhibit open talk about suicide.

2.       Recognize a person who might be having thoughts of suicide.

3.       Engage them in direct and open talk about suicide

4.       Listen to the person’s feelings about suicide and show that they are taken seriously.

5.       Move quickly to connect them with someone trained in suicide intervention.
