SuicideTALK is a short exploration and awareness-raising session, of one to three hours. It is flexible to meet the needs of each group. suicideTALK is aimed at all members and groups within communities.
It is practice-oriented and allows open and honest dialogue for anyone interested in attending. It lasts between one and three hours with content adapted to the needs of the group.
By dispelling the myth that talking about suicide promotes suicidal behaviour, SuicideTALK provides a solid foundation for suicide prevention. It aims to reduce stigma around suicide and promote awareness within the community. It also provides an opportunity for networking among participants.
The talk is a good starting point for those who would like to learn more about suicide and attitudes surrounding the issue. Many participants go on to attend an ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshop.
