safeTALK training for WRDSB parents & guardians

As part of our system goals to supporting student & staff wellness, we are pleased to offer more safeTALK training for parents and guardians of the WRDSB.

What is safeTALK?

safeTALK is a three-hour alertness workshop that prepares participants, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide alert helper.

What are the goals and objectives of safeTALK?

  • Recognize that invitations to help are often overlooked
  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss and avoid suicide
  • Notice and respond to situations in which thoughts of suicide may be present
  • Apply basic TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe)

Interested in participating?

Parents/guardians may register for any session. Please be aware that pre-registration is a must, as a spot will be saved for you. Please let us know if you are unable to attend after registering for a session.
