safeTALK is a three and a half hour face-to-face workshop featuring powerful presentations, audiovisuals, and skills practice surrounding suicide alertness. Community members learn how to prevent suicide by recognizing signs, engaging someone, and connecting them to an intervention resource for further support. TCHNetwork’s supportive trainers guide the class through the course, and a community resource is on hand to support safety and comfort.
“This community needs more people willing to talk about this [suicide] on all age levels and demographics”
“[This class] has definitely has given me the tools to recognize red flags and know when to take time to listen and question more.”
“This was such a wonderful training. I feel equipped with the language and dialect needed to approach and receive a conversation around suicide.”
“This training is so important. So many are walking around with thoughts of suicide. It is very important to know how to help someone.”
We regularly schedule courses throughout the year in Ouray, Montrose, San Miguel and Delta counties. To schedule a class for your club, school, hospital, or organization, contact Corinne Cavender at firstname.lastname@example.org
