Bay County safeTALK
This half-day in-person workshop helps break down the stigma around suicide, teaches people to recognize when others are struggling, and lead them to further help. The curriculum is similar to the skills taught in LivingWorks Start, but with further depth and the added benefit of face-to-face, real-time simulations. Evidence shows that LivingWorks safeTALK improves trainee skills, knowledge, confidence, and stigma reduction, and that the roleplaying components make for higher skill retention compared to similar programs. LivingWorks safeTALK is also shown to drive intervention behavior.
