Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts may be present
Recognise that invitations for help are often overlooked
Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe, and
Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further suicide-safer help.

Relevance: This course is relevant to people that want to create a suicide safer community. Although Safe Talk is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—Safe Talk can be learned and used by anyone.
