LivingWorks safeTALK is a four-hour face-to-face workshop featuring powerful presentations, audiovisuals, and skills practice. At a LivingWorks safeTALK workshop, you’ll learn how to prevent suicide by recognizing signs, engaging someone, and connecting them to an intervention resource for further support.

·         A skilled, supportive trainer will guide you through the course, and a community resource will be on hand to support your safety and comfort.

·         LivingWorks safeTALK is proven effective

·         Like all of LivingWorks’ core programs, LivingWorks safeTALK is evidence-based. Here’s what over 15 peer-reviewed reports and government studies on LivingWorks safeTALK found:

o    Safe for participants, with no adverse effects from training

o    Effective for participants as young as 15 years old
