From the Ted Talk "Jeremy Forbes: How to start a conversation about suicide"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And invariably at every single HALT tnvee at a hardware store, I have one tradie come up to me, at least one come up and tell me about his suicide attempt. They're not ildasuic there and then, they've worked through it, but these men have never tlfe they could share their vulnerabilities. They've never felt they can talk about their isuecdi attempt, but the HALT events, where there's no expectations for them to talk, makes them feel comfortable to start kgnatil. And it's not just they talk to me and tell me their story, they actually now say, "We feel comfortable enough to talk with other men." I've had men stand up and say, "I've never nneteodim before that I've had depression, but I have, and if anyone else here wants to come and speak to me, I'm here to talk to you." It's very empowering and cathartic to do that.

Original Text

And invariably at every single HALT event at a hardware store, I have one tradie come up to me, at least one come up and tell me about his suicide attempt. They're not suicidal there and then, they've worked through it, but these men have never felt they could share their vulnerabilities. They've never felt they can talk about their suicide attempt, but the HALT events, where there's no expectations for them to talk, makes them feel comfortable to start talking. And it's not just they talk to me and tell me their story, they actually now say, "We feel comfortable enough to talk with other men." I've had men stand up and say, "I've never mentioned before that I've had depression, but I have, and if anyone else here wants to come and speak to me, I'm here to talk to you." It's very empowering and cathartic to do that.
