SafeTALK course in Carraroe

Galway Rural Development - Thursday, May 02, 2019

Please see  below a leaflet for SafeTALK and some information for the services providers, support staff and volunteers. 

This workshop is in the evening in An Crompan, An Cheathrú Rua, Carraroe on the 8th May 2019

The workshop is from 7.00pm - 10.30pm 

SafeTALK is a half-day suicide alertness training course that prepares anyone over the age of 18, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.  

Places for this course can be booked on line, from the following links:
