Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t want to die—instead, they are looking for a way to work through the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they usually invite others to help them in making a choice for life. safeTALK teaches participants to recognize these invitations, engage with the person with thoughts of suicide, and connect them with resources to help them be safer from suicide. 

Over the course of their training, safeTALK participants will learn to:
• Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts may 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, KeepSafe, and
 • Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further suicide-safer help.
