Safe talk suicide prevention
SAFE Talk is an evening’s training programme that prepares 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 reduce suicide risk in their communities. The Safe Talk takes place on Tuesday, October 10, from 7pm to 10pm. Whilst the training is suitable for everyone who wants to help prevent suicide and is prepared to become suicide alert, it is not suited to someone who maybe recently bereaved by suicide. The training is provided free by the HSE. One must first submit an application form that is available from Ballyhoura Development Ltd. Baldwin St., Mitchelstown or email sallen@ ballyhoura.org or tel 0-25 85213.
