Free session to provide training in suicide prevention

Another session of safeTalk Suicide Prevention training, open to all members of the campus community, is set for 9 a.m. to noon Monday, Nov. 18, in the Collaboratorium on the first floor of Leddy Library.

The Wellness Outreach Office has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association to provide a year of free suicide prevention training through a grant from the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.

SafeTalk is a three-hour certificate program that prepares helpers to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first-aid resources. This presentation covers the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe.
