Lifeline Tasmania — safeTALK Workshops

7 October 2019 9:00 am Australia/Hobart

    With the support of the Mental Health Council of Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government, Lifeline Tasmania is pleased to provide three free safeTALK workshops for young people (aged 15 to 25 years) in Mental Health Week. safeTALK is a half-day (4 hour) interactive workshop suitable for all kinds of helpers in the community.

    Register for the safeTALK workshop in your area:

    The workshop 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 recognise these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

    Workshop features:

    • Presentations and guidance from a LivingWorks registered trainer
    • Access to support from a local community resource person
    • Powerful audiovisual learning aids
    • The simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
    • Hands-on skills practice and development

    safeTALK helps expand the reach of suicide intervention skills in communities around the world.
