safeTALK and ASIST

safeTALK

safeTALK is a half-day (3 hour) presentation aimed at increasing suicide alertness. This program alerts community members to signs that a person may be considering suicide. It acknowledges that while most people at risk of suicide signal their distress and invite help, these intervention opportunities are often overlooked.

Participants learn to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and to respond in ways that link them with further suicide intervention help. They will learn how basic TALK steps can link persons at risk with suicide first aid and other help to increase their safety.

Lifeline South Coast offers safeTALK training to the community as well as tailoring a package to suit specific organisational needs.

ASIST

ASIST is a 2-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid.

Participants learn to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide, apply a suicide first aid intervention model and respond in ways that helps to increase their immediate safety and link them to further help. ASIST training can be applied in any setting - with family, friends, co-workers and team mates and even more formal helping roles. Many organisations have adopted the program as part of the professional development of their workers.
