suicideTALK invites all participants over the age of 15 regardless of prior training or experience to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. It's a short exploration and awareness-raising session 60 to 90 minutes long. It is practice-oriented and allows open and honest dialogue for anyone interested in attending.
By dispelling the myth that talking about suicide promotes suicidal behaviour, suicideTALK provides a solid foundation for suicide prevention. It aims to reduce stigma around suicide and promote awareness within the community.
suicideTALK is a good starting point for those who would like to learn more about suicide and attitudes surrounding the issue. Many participants go on to attend a safeTALK.
suicideTALK participants learn...
- How suicide is a serious community health problem that is often misunderstood.
- How personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety.
- How the steps taught in the safeTALK programme can be used to help prevent suicide.
How to get involved in life protection, preservation, and promotion activities in the community.
