CANCELLED: Professional Development: SafeTALK: Suicide Prevention Training

Did you know that suicide is the second leading cause of death for college-age youth nationwide? (from the Center for Disease Control). While this can be a difficult topic to address, knowing how to work with students who may be expressing thoughts of suicide is critical and can help save a life! SafeTALK is a 3 hour training program that teaches participants to recognize and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. SafeTALK stresses safety while challenging taboos that inhibit open talk about suicide. The program recommends that an ASIST-trained resource or other community support resource be at all trainings. The ‘safe’ of safeTALstands for ‘suicide alertness for everyone’. The ‘TALK’ letters stand for the practice actions that one does to help those with thoughts of suicide: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe. Light lunch provided. Interested participants must register to attend this workshop. Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Max of 30 participants per session. Register at the following link: Hosted by FLC’s Behavior Intervention Team; Presenter: Stephanie Carlson, MBA, CATC III, Health Education Coordinator/SafeTALK Instructor, El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency.
