SuicideTALK, developed by LivingWorks Education, is a 1.5- to 2-hour exploration in suicide awareness. Organized around the question, “Should we talk about suicide?” it provides a structure in which session members can safely explore some of the most challenging attitudinal issues about suicide, and encourages every member to find a part that they can play in preventing suicide.
SuicideTALK is aimed at most all members of and groups in a community. Its goal is to help make direct, open and honest talk about suicide easier. Such talk may:
encourage life-protection, preservation and promotion activities,
facilitate community awareness of suicide as a serious community health problem,
reduce the stigma and taboo surrounding suicide,
increase personal commitment to and action in preventing suicide, and
support the spread of training opportunities and networking activities.
SuicideTALK is an exploration of the question, “Should we talk about suicide?” Ways to help a person at risk are discussed and session members then examine the range of things they could do to help prevent suicide.
