ASIST is an international two day, interactive training workshop that prepares participants to provide suicide prevention interventions. Many people considering suicide indicate their distress and their intent, sometimes very discreetly.
The training aimed at local authorities, primary care, and other frontline individuals, helps participants recognise what a person at risk may need from others in order to keep safe and get help.
This is a two day course available in February and March 2019.
DATE: Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th February or Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th March 2019
TIME: Each training day runs from 9.00am to 4.30pm
VENUE: Wakefield – Spectrum Head Office, One Navigation Walk, Hebble Wharf WF1 5RH
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.
