Suicide is a major issue and it's increasing and when someone takes their own life, the effect on the family, friends and our communities is devastating – An immeasurable impact.
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two day, skills building workshop that prepares caregivers of all kinds to provide suicide first aid interventions. Professionals, Volunteers and informal helpers all need to know how to help persons with thoughts of suicide in ways that increase their suicide safety.
Expert trainers from Forward For Life and Common Unity are offering a limited number of places on this World Health Organisation endorsed and internationally renowned ASIST training course in Birmingham.
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) trains frontline staff in early intervention and is the most widely trained suicide prevention programme in the world.
The 14-hour workshop held over two days teaches participants to connect, understand and assist people who may be at risk of suicide and is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, doctors, pharmacists, teachers, counsellors, youth workers, police and prison staff, school support staff, clergy, community volunteers, and those training to undertake these roles.
ASIST is underpinned by the idea that many people who are thinking about suicide will find some way to signal their intent. The workshops provide training in suicide intervention and are designed to help a person become more ready, willing, and able to help someone who is having thoughts of suicide.
