Course Content
SafeTALK - Suicide Alertness For Everyone - is a half-day course that can help you make a difference. Learn to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. This training prepares you to be a suicide alert helper by following the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). These steps offer initial help in order to connect people having thoughts of suicide with more specialised support.
For more information about the course click here.

Timings and Breaks
Check individual course details for start and finish times.  It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time!  A kitchen with tea and coffee facilities will be available during break times. 

Cancellations
If you have been allocated an West Sussex County Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for SafeTALK) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. Candidate substitutions can be made at any time. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders it will be more difficult to secure future funding for these courses.

Whole Courses and Bespoke Training
Whole Courses are a cost-effective way of training a whole team of staff or volunteers. Bespoke Training Courses can be developed and delivered by arrangement. We can design training to suit different settings; e.g. acute, residential, educational, corporate and community; different client groups and organisation with specific needs. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs.
