THIS IN-PERSON WORKSHOP IS AVAILABLE TO FACULTY AND STAFF – IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BU RESIDENCE OFFICE. REGISTRATION IS LIMITED AND UNIVERSITY PROTOCOLS WILL BE FOLLOWED, IN ACCORDANCE WITH PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES.

SafeTALK prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources.  Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe.  Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.  With this training, you will be better able to:

  • move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide;
  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
  • apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

Powerful video clips illustrate both non-alert and alert responses.  Discussion and practice help stimulate learning.  Learn steps that contribute to saving lives.

A certificate will be provided to participants following the completion of the program.
