Ranging from 90 minutes to a half a day, suicideTALK invites all
participants—regardless of prior training or experience—to become more
aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing
openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the
question "Should we talk about suicide?" By looking at this question in
a number of different ways, session members can discover some of the
beliefs and ideas about suicide in their communities—and in themselves.
suicideTALK participants learn…
- How suicide is a serious community health problem that is often misunderstood
- How personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety
- How the steps taught in LivingWorks’ safeTALK program can be used to help prevent suicide
- How to get involved in life protection, preservation, and promotion activities in the community
