safeTALK is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 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. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you 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 suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

This takes place at Trinity on the Hill UMC, 1330 Monte Sano Ave., Augusta GA 30904.

Pre-registration only (no walk ups) with deadline of 3/22/17 at 5:00 pm. Arrival time for check-in begin at 8:30am and we will begin promptly at 9am. Due to safeTALK guidelines, we are unable to admit anyone once we begin the training so please plan accordingly. $15 fee includes materials and light refreshments.

The Survivors of Suicide Support Group Leadership Training

Training facilitators for Survivors of Suicide (SOS) Support Groups and developing support teams for home visits

This 2 day training is based on the program developed by Iris Bolton, author of, My Son, My Son. The training is relevant for both survivors of a loss by suicide and professionals who wish to create and facilitate a support group for survivors of suicide loss, or to increase their skills in this area. Support teams are also trained to be volunteers available to make home visits when requested by the family in the crisis of their loss.

Survivors who are at least 18 months after the suicide of a loved one may find meaning in their loss by giving to others who are recently bereaved.
