safeTALK—The Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre (NPC) Staff and Volunteers are taking part in a safeTALK training facilitated by Jean Montgomery.  This is a three-hour training program that prepares helpers to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources.  Most people with thoughts of suicide, either directly or indirectly, invite help to stay safe.  Alert helpers know how to identify and work with these opportunities to help protect life.  Anyone who might want to help (minimum age 15 years), can attend.  By the end of the training, participants 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 and KeepSafe) to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to a suicide first aid intervention caregiver

 

 

 

Jean has offered a special price of $10 per person, the training is normally between $35-$50.  NPC Staff and Volunteers have taken this training before and it is very worth while!

NPC would like to invite all interested parties to join us for safeTALK training at the same great price extended to NPC staff.  The training will be held on Monday, June 25th from 1:00 - 4:00 pm at the Norfolk Pregnancy & Family Resource Centre.  There is limited space so please RSVP ASAP
