We are pleased to offer tickets to these workshops at NO COST to participants. Your enrolment is proudly supported by Community Recovery.
Suicide is preventable. Anyone can make a difference.
Attend the safeTALK program and learn to:

identify people who may have thoughts of suicide,
ask them directly about the possibility of suicide, then
connect them to live-saving resources.
safeTALK is an alertness workshop that prepares participants, regardless of prior experience or training to become a suicide-alert helper and is open to anyone 16 or older, regardless of prior experience.

Both professionals and members of the general public can benefit from safeTALK.

A certificate of attendance will be issued however, participants must complete the entire 4 hour training in full(this includes a break). It is important that no content be missed. It is strongly recommended to clear other commitments for the training day in advance.

Why take safeTALK?


Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. By connecting friends, family members, colleagues, and students with helping resources, safeTALK participants save lives in their communities.


safeTALK uses the easy-to-follow TALK steps—Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe—and includes time to practice them so the knowledge is retained.


safeTALK is a dynamic training that incorporates presentations and audiovisuals. It invites participants to become more alert to the possibility of suicide and how to prevent it.


More than 50,000 people attend safeTALK each year. safeTALK is used in over 20 countries worldwide, and many communities, organizations, and agencies have made it a core training program.


Studies show that safeTALK participants feel more confident asking people about suicide, connecting them with life-saving resources, and keeping them safe until those resources can take over.
