safeTALK: Suicide alertness for everyone

Feb 15, 2018 from 9:00am - 1:00pm 
Development and Community Services Building – Point of View Room
9875 N 85th Ave, Peoria, AZ 85345

safeTALK is a suicide alertness training.  It helps participants recognize a person with thoughts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live. This class will be taught by Timesha Moore-McHarris who is a Suicide Prevention Coordinator with MiKid. She travels statewide to have open discussions with youth in grades 9-12th, using an evidence-based curriculum, about the relationship between suicide and depression. Timesha is an alumnus at Arizona State University where she received her B.A. in Social and Behavioral Science and currently working on her Masters in Mental Health Counseling with a Specialization in Trauma and Crisis. She is a part of the Arizona Suicide Prevention Coalition and other coalitions in Arizona. 

Over the course of this training, safeTALK participants will learn to:

• Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
• Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked
• Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
• Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
• Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further help 

Participants don’t need any formal preparation to attend the training anyone age 15 or older who wants to make a difference can learn the safeTALK steps.
