safeTALK is a suicide alertness program that prepares community members of all kinds to be suicide alert helpers in only a few hours. safeTALK participants are aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed, and avoided. Participants will learn the TALK steps, (Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe) and can take a vital step in linking those people who experience suicidal ideation with caring community members who are trained in suicide intervention skills. Being trained in this process can assist in saving lives in our communities. safeTALK is designed to be used in organizations and communities where there are caregivers who have been trained in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).  It has been applied for 2.5 General CEUs by the NASW-La Chapter.
