Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) 2 day workshop

June 20 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:30am, repeating until June 21, 2017

In ASIST, the emphasis is on suicide ‘first aid’: helping a person with thoughts of suicide to stay safe and seek further help.  The vast majority of people with suicidal thoughts will find some way to signal their distress and their intent to harm themselves.  ASIST training can help us see and respond to these invitations for help.  The training provides participants with the confidence to ask about suicide and know what action to take.  By learning to recognise and assess someone with thoughts of suicide, participants become more effective at helping people at risk.

Cost: $235 (incl GST) for Volunteers and Not-For-Profit Organisations.  $305 (incl GST) for Government workers and Businesses.

8:30am-4:30pm each day.  Lunch, morning and afternoon teas provided.
