safeTALK suicide prevention training

This is a free training sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention-WA Chapter, Pierce County Library System, and CHI Franciscan Health's PAR Initiative. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:

  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide risk
  • Identify people who may have thoughts of suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) and connect a person with suicidal thoughts to help

safeTALK meets the Washington State Department of Health suicide prevention training requirements for some health care and school professionals.

Registration is required. Training is open to anyone age 15 or older. Email to register.
