safeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone 15 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.

Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world, and more than 200 selectable video vignettes have been produced to tailor the program’s audio-visual component for diverse audiences. safeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.

Learning goals and objectives

Over the course of their training, safeTALK participants will learn to:

Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further help

On February 15, 2016 North Bramalea United Church was privileged to welcome to Canada a family of 7 from Syria. 

 

Over the past few months, Saif (16), Ossama (12), Malak (9) and Mohammad Ali (5) have settled into their new schools.  Amal has been learning English, and Tala (3) has been making new friends at a child care centre.  Amer continues with his work with an international medical supply company.  Through the efforts of countless volunteers, the family has visited Niagara Falls, has made trips to the doctor, dentist and optometrist offices, and has started swimming lessons!

 

The summer promises to be an exciting time for the family.  The children are looking forward to day camps at NBUC, and are also planning to participate in camps operated by the City of Brampton Parks and Recreation Department.  They have their calendars marked for the Lucas Holtom Carnival Day on July 9, and we at NBUC are thrilled to be able to share this special day with them.

 

Even more excitingly, North Bramalea United Church will be partnering with Heart Lake United Church to help sponsor Amer’s brother, wife and 2 children, who are currently living in Jordan.  What a wonderful opportunity for the United Church to unite for such a worthwhile endeavor! 

 

The Refugee Sponsorship Group would like to thank all from NBUC and the community for their generous efforts and contributions.  We have been enriched through new friendships, and have been able to live out our faith in real and tangible ways as followers of Christ.  The church is as alive and relevant today as ever, and we are grateful to be a part of God’s great hopes for our world.
