safeTALK is a half-day hour 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.
Used widely by professionals and the general public, safeTALK-trained helpers recognise these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

* We acknowledge that attending a workshop that discusses suicide may bring up difficult and distressing emotions for people, especially for those who have been personally or professionally impacted by suicide.
Therefore, we ask that you consider whether this is an appropriate time for you to attend a session focused on suicide prevention and responding to people with thoughts of suicide.
If you are uncertain or wish to discuss further you are encouraged to contact Jacquie Tarrant, Suicide Prevention Coordinator, by email at [email protected] or by calling 0429 229 400.
