What is SP-EAK?

How does SP-EAK help to prevent suicide?

The majority of young people experiencing thoughts of suicide show or give signs to those around them that they may be thinking about taking their life. Participants will learn what these ‘signs’ look like, how to respond to them and how to work with that person to keep them suicide-safe.

After training, participants will:

– Have a greater awareness of the prevalence of suicide on a local and national level
– Be more aware of what signs to look out for
– Have the skills and confidence to explore suicide appropriately when identifying signs
– Understand what sources of support are available to promote safety
