In recognition of Mental Health Week, you will save $25 on your safeTALK ticket purchase.

Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die but are struggling with the pain in their lives. In safeTALK, which is a three and a half hour suicide prevention workshop, participants, regardless of� prior experience or training, will gain knowledge about how to help a person that is thinking about suicide connect to the support they require. In the safeTALK training participants will learn to:

• Identify people who may have thoughts of suicide
• Ask them directly about the possibility of suicide, then
• Connect them to life-saving community supports and resources.

More than 50,000 people in 20 countries attend safeTALK each year


Talking about suicide can be difficult, especially if you have recently been impacted by a suicide attempt or death. Healing from these tragic events can take months or years, so we encourage you to take time for healing before attending suicide intervention training.

If you have experienced a suicide death healing support is available at BC Bereavement Helpline 1-877-779-2223, and www.bcbereavementhelpline.com.

You can also access information and support at: Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, www.suicideprevention.ca/grieving/suicide-grief/.
