September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day. In recognition of this important day the Canadian Mental Health Association: Hamilton Branch is pleased to offer safeTALK Training at a subsidized rate of only $15 per person for the general public!
safeTALK is a half-day alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper
Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive.
safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training - ASIST
Please see attached flyers for additional details.
