safeTALK – Alice Springs
Northern Territory PHN invites health professionals in Alice Springs to attend the safeTALK workshop.
LivingWorks safeTALK is a four-hour face-to-face workshop featuring powerful presentations, audiovisuals, and skills practice. At a LivingWorks safeTALK workshop, you’ll learn how to prevent suicide by recognizing signs, engaging someone, and connecting them to an intervention resource for further support.
A skilled, supportive trainer will guide you through the course, and a community resource will be on hand to support your safety and comfort.
Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world, and more than 200 selectable video vignettes have been produced to tailor the program’s audio-visual component. safeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.
Like all of LivingWorks’ core programs, LivingWorks safeTALK is evidence-based. Here’s what over 15 peer-reviewed reports and government studies on LivingWorks safeTALK found:
- Improves trainee skills and readiness
- Safe for trainees, with no adverse effects from training
- Helps break down suicide stigma in the community
- Better skill retention compared to other connector programs
safeTALK helps expand the reach of suicide intervention skills around the world.
