Suicide Awareness Workshop

posted 22 Jan 2015, 18:41 by Brian Carroll
Shannon Gaels Gaa Club in conjunction with the HSE are holding a SafeTalk workshop on Thursday 12th Feb in Croghan Community Centre. This workshop is suitable for everyone who wants to help prevent suicide.
SafeTalk is a 3.5 hour alertness programme which prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. 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 communities.
Expect to leave SafeTalk more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.
Each workshop is limited to 30 participants. A booking form can be obtained by contacting Brian Carroll 087-2420896 and this form is then returned to Mary O'Sullivan Resource Officer for Suicide Prevention, HSE West, 64 Dominick Street, Galway or via email
Anyone interested in this course please let me know as soon as possible as I need to get back to the HSE with numbers. You can text or call me on 0863596604.
