What Will You Learn?                                                                                                                 

In LivingWorks SafeTALK you will learn how to reach out to someone thinking about suicide and help them keep safe by promptly connecting them to further support. Your role as a connector is the main focus of this training. It will prepare you to raise and respond to concerns about suicide in relationships with family, friends, and co-workers.  Additionally to build a culture of safety from suicide in your organisation or community.

You will also be encouraged and empowered to talk openly with someone about suicide through a 4-stepmodel. Overcoming personal and community attitudes to seeking and providing help is a key theme of this training.

LivingWorks aim to provide a safe learning environment. The learning process includes:

• Trainer presentations, facilitated discussion, and skills practice

• Videos that illustrate what happens when signs of suicide are overlooked, and how you can contribute to safe outcomes when these signs are heard and addressed

Direct and honest discussion about suicide is encouraged. While sometimes challenging, this prepares helpers to openly approach people with thoughts of suicide and connect them with further help.
