Trainer & Community Resource Person

Caroline is a registered LivingWorks trainer who is trained in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) and has completed the required safeTALK Training for Trainers. She has extensively studied the program and must also participate in a rigorous quality control process and maintain her skills by presenting safeTALK trainings on a regular basis. In addition to the trainer, each safeTALK training includes a community resource person. The community resource person is on hand to recommend local suicide prevention connections that can assist someone at risk. Referring someone to these connections is an important part of the safeTALK model. In addition, the community resource person can provide assistance and support if any participants are struggling with the subject of suicide in the training.
