LivingWorks Start

In the face of COVID-19, we have had to suspend our in-person training programs. We view suicide prevention training as being an essential element in our battle to save lives. We are glad to offer free access to a great 90-minute online training from LivingWorks, the company that designed safeTALK and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). Whether you're new to suicide prevention or are highly trained, Start is a great way to enhance your knowledge and skills. 

  • LivingWorks Start teaches valuable skills to everyone 13 and older and requires no formal training or prior experience in suicide prevention.
  • You'll learn a powerful four-step model to keep someone safe from suicide, and you'll have a chance to practice it with impactful simulations.
  • Safety resources and support are available throughout the program.
  • Access to this training is being paid for by the SPTF so it is free to you!
