Consultation has concluded

13 November 2018

Most people with thoughts of suicide don't truly want to die but are struggling with the pain in their lives.

The City is hosting free workshops this year to help you recognise the signs of potential suicide, with the next one at the Cockburn Mens Shed from 9am to 1pm on Tuesday 13 November, 2018. The address is 2 Sullivan Street, Cockburn Central.

This is a free workshop for people wanting to learn more about recognising the signs someone may be considering suicide and where to go for help. This workshop is targeting men, however everyone is welcome (15 years+)

safeTALK is a half-day workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. You may be able to recognise the signs and refer people for help.

TALK stands for Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe

Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in more than 20 countries. More than 200 short videos have been produced to tailor the program for diverse audiences. As a helper, you will become an important part of the community, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.

The free workshops feature:

  • Presentations and guidance from a 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.
