Working to improve the lives of children and adults with mental illnesses and their families
NAMI Minnesota will offer a safeTALK suicide prevention class in Minneapolis on Feb. 16. Learn how to support someone’s desire for safety by recognizing the warning signs of suicide, identifying people who are at risk, and applying the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person to suicide first aid resources. Listed on the national best practice registry, safeTALK allows time for both practice and discussion. safeTALK is based on research that shows people experiencing thoughts of suicide often send out subtle invitations to help them stay safe. This three-hour workshop is for members of the community over the age of 16 who want to lean and practice the basic best practices in suicide prevention.
