Safe talk sui­cide prevention

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
