Safe TALK: Certificate Program for Suicide Alertness
SafeTALK is a 3-hour training designed to ensure that people with thoughts of suicide are connected to helpers who are prepared to provide first-aid interventions.
As part of the University of Toronto's commitment to create a suicide-safer community on campus, the Student and Campus Community Development Office in collaboration with the Health and Wellness Centre have partnered to offer this workshop.
The workshop is delivered by U of T staff and is part of a University-wide suicide prevention strategy. Through examples in video, small group discussion and scenario practice, participants will learn practical steps to help activate a suicide alert that connects people having thoughts of suicide with more specialized intervention care and relevant resources.
All participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the whole training. If you arrive late to the session, or leave early, you will not receive the safeTALK certificate.
The safeTALK workshop was designed by Living Works, international leaders in suicide prevention programs.
Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop. Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session. A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
