Over the two sessions over 40 people have taken part from the local area. The theme in the Safe Talk 3 hour session is to prepare participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources, These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help then reduce suicide risk in their communities. Following the safe TALK workshop members of the public will be more willing and able to perform an important helping role to persons with thoughts of suicide. Those who completed the 3 hour session will be eligible to take part in a two day workshop at a date yet to be decided.
