We are excited to have combined the Crisis Society's Crisis Intervention Skills Training two-day workshop with LivingWorks' safeTALK three-hour workshop – at no extra cost!

CIST & safeTALK: This is a good fit.

You will learn how to address crisis in a number of settings and be provided with a concise set of skills to enable you to address suicide awareness and prevention.

Join us at our Training Centre in Nanaimo or contact us at so that we can facilitate these two popular workshops on your premises.
