Suicide Alertness for Everyone (safeTALK) is a suicide alertness programme that teaches participants to recognise people who may have thoughts of suicide and connect them to intervention resources. Delivered in a three-hour session, safeTALK helps participants to: be aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed; recognise when someone might be having thoughts of suicide; feel confident in listening to the person's feelings and talk with them in an honest and direct way; know what the local suicide intervention resources are; act quickly to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to someone trained in suicide intervention.
 
safeTALK is facilitated by an experienced trainer and incorporates discussion, practical guidance, video clips and interactive learning. Sessions are aimed specifically at creating awareness of young people who may have thoughts of suicide
