									safeTALk teaches members of the community to recognize people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them
to suicide first aid resources. This half-day workshop offers a carefully crafted set of helping steps and the use of
creative educational processes to make it possible for attendees to leave safeTALK willing and able to be
suicide alert helpers.
            In only a few hours, attendees will learn how to:
               ¾ provide practical help to people with thoughts of suicide
                ¾     be a suicide alert helper
                ¾    be aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are
                     sometimes missed, dismissed and avoided
                ¾     activate a suicide alert using the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe)
                ¾     connect people with thoughts of suicide to people trained in suicide intervention
