Engineering faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in safeTALK training.  This half-day training session in suicide alertness will help participants recognize a person with thoughts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live.

Participants will learn to:

1. Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
2. Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked.
3. Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide.
4. Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
5. Know the community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of  suicide to them for further help.

If you would like to participate in this training or have more questions about it, please contact Emma Douglas (edougl3@uwo.ca) by December 10th.  There are 30 spaces available for this training session.
