Marianne Reid, was the trainer for the SafeTALK, she was my SafeTALK trainer and she is just so amazing in what she does. I was very pleased with the turnout, although I surprised that not many students attended, being that suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students. So I made it one of my goals as a student, to get other students more involved in preventing suicide because this affects us, it affects everyone.
I highly recommend that everyone be SafeTALK trained, because I know that it makes me feel safer knowing that anywhere I turn, if I need help, someone will be there and that if someone else needs help, I will be there to listen and to help.
If you're interested in getting SafeTALK trained, contact me and I will love to set you up with the resources you need to host a SafeTALK training in your community, so that you can feel safer and so you can help others feel safer.
