Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) for service providers, is going to be held on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 September at Castlemaine Continuing Education.  Cost to participants is $80 and includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and resources.  Bookings can be made through trybooking here.

ASIST is a two-day workshop that teaches participants to carry out life-saving interventions for people at risk.  It trains participants to become better prepared to recognise when someone may be thinking of suicide, respond in ways that clarify and address suicide risk, understand why suicide thoughts are present, work together to review risk and increase safety and facilitate links with further help.

The training will be facilitated by Kya Moore and Matt Pennell.
