Event description

Description

The Ballarat and District Suicide Prevention Network is offering free suicide prevention education. The training will be delivered by a Lifeline safeTALK facilitator.

Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t want to die, but are struggling in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive.

safeTALK-trained helpers can recognise these invitations and act by connecting them with life-saving intervention and resources.

safeTALK is

  • a half-day suicide alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper
  • an excellent tool for people who want to become alert to the dangers of suicide in a convenient timeframe

Participants have a chance to practice their skills in the workshop. Each person will leave safeTALK with practical knowledge about how to identify someone at risk and link them to life-saving resources.

Places are strictly limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
