A safeTALK Training workshop will be delivered in Fermoy on Thursday 8th September from 7-10pm.

safeTALK participants learn four basic steps to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide helping resources within the community. These specific skills are called Suicide Alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their own communities. Following a safeTALK workshop participants will be more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.

Suicide is every one’s business. We all know someone that has been affected by this issue and this training provides participants with the confidence to be a support to others who may have suicidal thoughts.

This FREE training is suitable for everyone over 18 years of age who wants to help prevent suicide and is prepared to become suicide alert. Places on the workshop are limited to 30, so early booking is advisable.

If you or anyone you know is interested in finding out more about this FREE Suicide Alertness training please contact Jacinta McCormack, Community Health Worker on 085 874 2320 or email at chpfermoy@gmail.com.
