SafeTALK is a 3.5 hour suicide alertness programme that prepares participants

to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid
resources. These specific set of skills are called suicide alertness and are
taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help
to help reduce suicide risk in their community.

As a safeTALK trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:
• Move beyond the common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide;
• Identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
• Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen & Keepsafe) to connect a person with

thoughts to suicide first-aid intervention caregivers.

For Whom:
This training is suitable for anyone over the age of 18 who is prepared to be a
suicide alert helper.

Video clips which illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discuss and
practice the steps that contribute to saving lives.

  • Places are limited to thirty participants on each course.
  • For information on all co-ordinating sites please visit
  • It is recommended that anyone who has been bereaved or affected by a suicide within the past 12 months do not attend, as structured training like SafeTALK is probably not what they need.


It is important to read the course description and information leaflet to ensure this course is suitable for you at this time. It is important that you are available to attend the full duration of the training course. Please note the start time and endeavour to arrive 15 minutes early to complete the registration.
