safeTALK is a 4-hour, in-person workshop to build skills in suicide prevention. Participants will learn how to recognize and engage with someone thinking about suicide, overcome attitudes that act as barriers to help, talk openly about suicide and connect with intervention resources for further support.

Through presentations, audiovisuals, small group discussion and scenario practice, you will learn a 4-step TALK model and practical steps to help activate a suicide alert that connects people having thoughts of suicide with more specialized intervention care and relevant resources.

All participants will receive a learning booklet, resources and a Certificate of Completion.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), like chlamydia and gonorrhea, can go unnoticed as they don't often cause symptoms so it is important to routinely get STI tests.

Student Health and Wellness, in partnership with the sexual health team at Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, is hosting drop-in, confidential STI testing at the Wellness Centre (OR 1012).

Drop by for a test, get a free slice of pizza, and pick up sexual health supplies for future consensual activities.
