Phoenix Centre and LivingWorks Education present safeTALK workshop.
This 3.5 hour safeTALK workshop is for everyone who wants to help prevent suicide: front line workers, clergy, volunteers, parents, youth (age 15 and older), police officers, teachers, bicultural workers, interpreters or anyone who wants to learn suicide prevention skills.
Participants will learn four basic steps to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with appropriate resources.
Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help but these opportunities can be missed, dismissed or avoided, leaving people more alone and at greater risk. safeTALK workshop prepares you to help by using TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe).

Anyone interested in providing support to people who may be at risk of suicide. Participants must be over the age of 15 years.
