July 26, 2016 6pm – 9 pm Absentee Shawnee Tribal Complex Building #9 (Title 6) 2025 S. Gordon Cooper Drive Shawnee, Ok Why should I come to safeTALK? In only a few hours, you will learn how to provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide. Expect to leave safeTALK more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide. How does safeTALK help prevent suicide? safeTALK prepares you to be a suicide alert helper. You are aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed and avoided. You want persons with thoughts to invite your help. You know the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) and can activate a suicide intervention. Helpers trained in suicide intervention complete the helping process or connect the person with more specialized help. Why use safeTALK to learn to become more alert? A carefully crafted set of helping steps and the use of creative educational processes make it possible for you and up to 30 others in your community to leave safeTALK willing and able to be suicide alert helpers. safeTALK is the result of some twenty years of work at learning how to develop useful suicide prevention abilities in a short program. Why is safeTALK for everyone? Most persons with thoughts of suicide go unrecognized—even though most all are, directly or indirectly, requesting help. Without safeTALK training, these invitations to help are too rarely accepted, or even noticed. With more suicide alert helpers, more people with thoughts of suicide will get connected to the intervention help they want. Suicide alert helpers are part of a suicide-safer community. For Registration (15 years old and up) or for more information, please contact Jenifer Sloan at or 701-7988. Snacks and Incentives will be available for participants!
