Safe TALK workshop set for Jan. 15

MOUNT FOREST - A suicide-alertness workshop will be taking place in Mount Forest on Jan. 15.

SafeTALK is a half-day, evidence-based suicide-alertness workshop that prepares anyone 15 years of age and older to become a suicide-alert helper.

SafeTALK-trained helpers can recognize the invitations and take action by connecting a person at risk with life-saving intervention resources.

Suicide accounts for 24 percent of all deaths among those 15 to 24, say organizers.

SafeTALK participants will learn to:

- notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present;

- recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked;

- move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide;

- apply the TALK steps: tell, ask, listen and keep safe; and

- know community resources and how to connect someone for further help.

The workshop takes place Jan. 15 from 6 to 9:30pm at the Mount Forest and  District Sports Complex, in Mount Forest. The cost is $20 per person (regular $50). Pre-registration is required.
