I was asked to complete safeTALK training for a community agency I volunteer with. I felt very welcomed by the trainer Rebecca Smith. She approached the topic of suicide in a knowledgeable and sensitive matter. Rebecca took the time to hear from the participants, answer their questions and support their experiences. This is valuable training and I believe everyone should take part. My main takeaway is that talking about suicide should be done openly, directly and respectfully. Thank you, Rebecca for making the training a safe space for us all!

“Thank you for your guidance and honest belief in the abilities of all the people on this team. Thank you for creating such a welcoming space that embraces differences and weakens distress. You have TRULY made me a better person.”
