SafeTALK is a three-hour presentation which aims to increase suicide awareness by teaching participants how to recognise signs of a person in distress and considering suicide. Participants learn how to respond appropriately to a person considering suicide and how to use available resources to link that person with professional help.

It is intended that SafeTALK participants will be better prepared to:

  • Recognise that invitations to help are often overlooked
  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss and avoid conversations around suicide
  • Notice and respond to situations in which thoughts of suicide may be present
  • Apply basic TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe)
  • Connect the person with thoughts of suicide to suicide first aid help and further community resources
