safeTALK training at a subsidized rate

May 5, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

In recognition of Mental Health Week the Canadian Mental Health Association Hamilton is pleased to offer safeTALK training at a subsidized rate of only $10 per person

  • safeTALK is a half-day alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper
  • Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive
  • safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training – ASIST
