Talking about suicide is our best form of prevention, but fears like this can get in the way of us starting a conversation:
"What if I say the wrong thing?"
"What if I make things worse?"
"What if I put the idea in their head?"
Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools (TAS10) is a 90-minute online training to blast away fears and stigma, and to equip you with practical tools to talk about suicide with someone you are worried about.
The session is delivered live on Zoom, safely and sensitively, by an experienced engaging trainer, with additional emotional and technical support staff.
The session includes an industry-specific Life Saving Conversation to illustrate how the ten tools can actually sound. For example, this could be a conversation between two colleagues working remotely, a bartender and customer, or a teacher and student.
TAS10 is for anyone and everyone: no prior training needed.
We have delivered to over 2000 people including teachers, medical students, helpline volunteers and police.
