safeTALK Suicide Prevention*

  I am a  LivingWorks safeTALK Trainer and endeavour to help make Kenmare a suicide safer community
  by frequently delivering this free suicide awareness workshop in the wider Kenmare area.

  If you or the organisation you work with would like to arrange a safeTALK, please get in touch with me
  or directly with the HSE Suicide Prevention Officer

* "SafeTALK 'suicide alertness for everyone' is a half day training programme that 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. Participants
   learn how to provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide in only a few hours. Following a safeTALK
   workshop you will be more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide."


This talk in the SOUL SEARCH series explores how courage, compassion and connection can help us to feel that we belong, and that we are being enough. It encourages you to embrace your imperfection and wholehearted living by cultivating authenticity, creativity, resilience, joy, and gratitude.

The duration of this talk is 60 minutes.
