Suicide Alertness for Everyone

safeTALK provides in-depth skills to recognize signs of suicide, engage someone, and ensure a connection to safety. The in-person format includes powerful audiovisuals and live practice.

safeTALK participants will be better prepared to:

  • recognize the invitations to help
  • move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss and avoid suicide
  • notice and respond to situations in which thoughts of suicide may be present
  • apply basic TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep Safe)
  • connect the person with thoughts of suicide to suicide first-aid help and further community resources

There will also be a session on Friday, November 17 at the Upper Miramichi Community Library, located at Central New Brunswick Academy in New Bandon from 12:30pm until 4:30pm.
