Like all of LivingWorks’ core programs, LivingWorks safeTALK is evidence-based. Here’s what over 15 peer-reviewed reports and government studies on LivingWorks safeTALK found:

  • Improves participant skills and readiness
  • Safe for participants, with no adverse effects from training
  • Effective for participants as young as 15 years old
  • Helps break down suicide stigma in the community
  • Better skill retention compared to other connector programs

LivingWorks safeTALK participants learn to recognize when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to an intervention provider, such as an LivingWorks ASIST participants.

In this way, LivingWorks safeTALK participants build a safety network around these intervention providers and greatly increase their reach and impact.
