NEA will fund training materials and space for two three-hour safeTALK (suicide alertness) classes for up to 30 delegates per class at an RA event in 2020.

Rationale/Background

Suicide continues to impact our students, colleagues, and communities. This training will equip members to recognize when suicide is present, and to connect a person with suicidal thoughts to someone trained in intervention.
