SafeTalk is a three hour session that prepares participants to recognize people who have thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide intervention resources. Powerful videos illustrate the importance of suicide alertness, while discussion and practice stimulate learning.  More information is available on the registration page.  There is a fee to participate in this training: Students: $10, Staff: $20
