This fall, CTeen SRQ of Chabad of Sarasota-Manatee will host three back-to-back safeTALK workshops for youth and adults. SafeTALK, a three-hour suicide alertness and prevention training, developed by Livingworks, is an innovative workshop that provides participants with tools, knowledge and awareness to assist their peers who may struggle with thoughts of suicide. After the workshop, participants will have the skills to recognize signs of suicidal thoughts in their friends, peers, and community members.  The program is the second installment of Chabad of Sarasota-Mantee’s mental health awareness initiative, which previously included One Thing I Wish You Knew.

Trainings will take place at Chabad of Sarasota, 7700 Beneva Rd., Sarasota, on Sunday, September 8, from 12pm to 3pm (teens only), and 6pm to 9pm (community-wide); Monday, September 9 from 9am to 12pm (community-wide). Registration is $10 for youth and $20 for anyone over the age of eighteen, however, no one will be turned away due to financial constraints. All three workshops will offer light refreshments and a question and answer session following the training.
