safeTALK Training for Trainers

safeTALK Training for Trainers (T4T) is a two-day course that prepares attendees to facilitate safeTALK, a suicide alertness training for everyone.

The T4T course is the first step toward becoming a registered safeTALK trainer. In the course, attendees learn the content and process of safeTALK and the skills needed to conduct it.

During the first half-day of the T4T, participants will experience the safeTALK workshop. This provides a shared experience that helps frame the rest of the learning. The remaining time focuses on the skills necessary to lead the workshop, including use of the safeTALK Trainer Manual and audiovisuals, developing the confidence and mastery to present the content, and establishing links with other trainers who may become part of a support network.  Attendees can expect a balance of challenge, support, and opportunities for participation at the T4T.


safeTALK T4T participants need to have successfully completed ASIST 11.  If you are interested in becoming a safeTALK trainer, please read the Essential Info for Candidates.
