safeTalk Post Primary Training for Staff

The Department of Education and Skills and the National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP), in partnership with the network of Education Centres, will offer a training programme in safeTALK during the 2017/18 school year. This safeTALK training is funded by the Department and the HSE’s National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP) as part of Connecting for Life, Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide 2015-2020.

safeTALK has an awareness and training focus; participants learn to recognise and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with individuals in the community who are trained to provide suicide intervention(s). After training, participants in the safeTALK programme should be able to:

              Challenge attitudes that inhibit open talk about suicide.

              Recognise a person who might be having thoughts of suicide.

              Engage them in direct and open talk about suicide.

              Listen to the person’s feelings about suicide to show that they are taken seriously.
