CMHA WW Proud Recipients of a Guelph Community Foundation Grant to Fund Free SafeTALK Training in Guelph-Wellington


The Guelph Community Foundation has generously provided CMHA WW with a grant that will allow us to offer five free SafeTALK workshops for residents of Guelph Wellington. Thirty people are able to attend each workshop, which will mean 150 new people will be trained in SafeTALK. These workshops will assist residents of Guelph-Wellington in gaining a deeper understanding of suicide prevention techniques, including how to see early warning signs and how to access mental health supports when needed.

Evidence suggests that a community where suicide SafeTALK training is prevalent can reduce suicidal activity and prevent unnecessary deaths. SafeTALK is a training for individuals to understand the warning signs of suicide, how to manage suicidal ideation and how to seek formal health care supports. Similar to taking a physical “first aid” course, SafeTALK can also prevent lives lost.

Please watch our events page on our website, sign up for our newsletter, and follow our social media – Facebook, Twitter, to find out when we will be hosting our free SafeTALK trainings.
