safeTALK is a 3 hour alertness workshop that prepares participants, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.  Suicide alert community members are better prepared to become a vital link in connecting persons at risk with further help.

Cameron Heights is hosting a safeTALK training session designed for parents/guardians of WRDSB students.  See the Informational flyer for full details.
