suicideTALK: An exploration in suicide awareness

safeTALK

suicideTALK is a session that invites interested community members to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question, "Should we talk about suicide?"

As a suicideTALK-informed session member, you will be better able to:

  • understand how personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety;
  • appreciate how the steps taught in safeTALK can be used to help prevent suicide;
  • choose among ways to help protect, preserve and promote life in a suicide-safer community.
