safeTALK for NPS school counselors

January 27 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

This training is not open to the public. It is for Norfolk Public Schools Counselors to reinforce how to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. SafeTALK-trained suicide alert helpers are 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, KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, and intervention caregivers.

Powerful video clips illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and practice help stimulate learning. Learn steps that contribute to saving lives.
