SafeTALK Training for Families
PCMH has partnered with CMHA Hamilton to bring SafeTALK Training for Families in four locations!
This training is an ideal opportunity for families who are raising children and youth with mental health disorders/illnesses or families who would like to expand their skill sets to support those dealing with mental illness.
• safeTALK is a half-day alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper
• Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive.
• safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training - ASIST
