Suicide Prevention Training
ASIST 11 – Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
ASIST is a 2-day workshop for anyone who wants to feel more confident in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
ASIST is a 2-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course aimed at enabling people to spot the risk of suicide and provide immediate help to persons at risk. In the same way that skills are needed for physical first aid, ASIST develops the skills necessary for suicide first aid. Participants are expected to fully participate given this is a skills based workshop. It is suitable for anyone, from professionals and volunteers to members of the community. Participants range from those in caring roles to people concerned about family members or friends.
ASIST is offered free of charge to anyone within Forth Valley.
