S2S team completes SafeTalk training
Some of the Steps to Success (S2S) team completed SafeTALK training Level 1 and 2 with Dare to Stretch.
SafeTalk (Suicide Alertness for Everyone) is intended as “suicide alertness” training. safeTALK teaches you to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide.
The session also emphasised the importance of recognising the signs, communicating with the person at risk, getting help or resources for the person at risk.
This training course that can help us to make a difference. As a safeTALK trained suicide alert helper we will be better able to identify people who have thoughts of suicide and apply the TALK steps (tell, ask, listen and keep safe) to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to a suicide caregiver.
