ASIST 11 (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)

2 day course: 12th and 13th March 2018

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.

Since its development in 1983 by LivingWorks, ASIST has received regular updates to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, and over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop. Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk and is a cost-effective way to help address the problem of suicide.

This training will be delivered by GrassRoots: http://www.prevent-suicide.org.uk/index.html

Your workshop trainers will be available to offer support and will work hard to create a learning atmosphere where participants can also encourage and support each other and have some fun. The workshop can be tiring and it is important you try to leave the evenings free to relax. Participants from previous courses have suggested that we let future participants know how tiring the course can be, so please do plan some time for you - before and after the course.

There is no Parking at the venue.

Please note: This ASIST course has been subsidised by Surrey County Council. Therefore the training is for people living or working in Surrey. If you book and are unable to attend please cancel your place ASAP.
