SuicideTALK

 

suicideTALK invites youth to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their school and community. This exploration focuses upon the question “Should we talk about suicide?”  suicideTALK participants will discover…

  • How suicide is a serious community health problem that is often misunderstood
  • How personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety
  • How the TALK steps can be used to help prevent suicide
  • How to get involved in life protection, preservation, and promotion activities in the community

Suitable for youth 15 and older, including Peer Helper groups.

Contact youthworkshops@crisiscentre.bc.ca to discuss how this might fit into your school or organization’s suicide response plan.

As suicideTALK is staff-delivered, the suggested fee is $50 per workshop.
