CMHA Kelowna is offering a reduced rate safeTALK course on September 21st in recognition of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and Suicide Prevention Month (September). This course is being subsidized by the CMHA BC Division Gatekeeper Project.
safeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. To learn more, visit our Workshops page or the LivingWorks website.
safeTALK teaches participants how to:

• use the simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
Cost: $36.75 includes GST and materials.
