Suicide is preventable. Save a life. Learn the skills. Make a difference. What is suicideTALK? suicideTALK is an excellent first step toward suicide prevention, it helps participants explore the issue of suicide, attitudes towards it, and how they can find ways to prevent it in their communities. The information provided will help participants:
Understand how personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety.
Appreciate how talking openly about suicide can help prevent it.
Contribute to suicide safety by protecting, preserving, and promoting life in their communities.
