Course description

Suicide prevention is an important and growing issue among post-secondary institutions. For example, a 2011 survey of 1,600 University of Alberta students found that 7% of them had seriously considered suicide in the past year. A similar survey of over 100,000 students at US colleges and universities produced comparable results, with 6.4% of students identifying that they had seriously considered suicide within the last year. This workshop will be delivered by Conestoga Counselors who have been trained on safeTALK methodology. safeTALK is a standardized workshop designed to prepare anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them directly to a trained helper.By participating in a three-hour workshop, you will learn the steps of Talk, Ask, Listen, and Keep safe. The workshop incorporates video clips, discussion and practice to help you learn these important skills.
