safeTALK is a three-hour training program that prepares helpers to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first-aid resources. Frontline workers can arm themselves with safeTALK so they can become confident with how to handle suicide situations and can do their part to assist the person.

Volunteering on the crisis line is a rewarding experience. We offer an opportunity to learn new and useful skills as well as an opportunity to be involved in a “front line” helping environment. Many people find our program very useful for developing marketable skills and for exploring education options.

The time span covers the sessions offered in Phase 1 of the training program.
