About the course
This is a half day (3.5 hour) face-to-face suicide alertness training course that can help you make a difference. It will support you in knowing what to do if someone is suicidal by following the easy to remember TALK steps – Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe. The Board in collaboration with Mission to Seafarers are pleased to be able to offer this person course on request.
The SafeTALK courses are available to candidates from all our Constituent organisations and where appropriate and space allows, candidates from other organisations within the maritime sector including those members who sit on our PWC’s.
Courses arranged upon request.
The workshop is divided into two sections with breaks.
Section 1: Why SafeTALK? And an introduction to the TALK steps.
Section 2: Applying the TALK steps and identifying suicide first aiders in your community.
On completing the workshop, you will receive a SafeTALK certificate, acknowledging your abilities as a Suicide Alert Helper in the community.
