safeTALK

This is a 3.5 to 4 hour suicide alertness programme that prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help save lives.

Expect to leave safeTALK more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.

ASIST

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a 2-day skills-based workshop that equips caregivers for an effective suicide intervention role. The emphasis is on suicide first aid – helping a person at imminent risk stay safe and seek further help. Participants reflect on their attitudes and beliefs about suicide and how these may affect their intervention role. They learn how to notice invitations for help and ask directly about suicide. An intervention framework is provided and modelled. This is followed by extensive opportunities to practice skills needed to implement the model. Community resources likely to promote life links and continuity of care are also identified.
