Who it’s for: everyone 16 or older—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid.

The ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.
Information about the course: ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.
Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk.

When & Where
Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland
Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland is the leading HIV and sexual health charity in the country, offering a wide range of essential, free services to people living with HIV and those at risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Our goal is simple: Promote good sexual health to young people and adults across Scotland and provide care with respect and sensitivity. Good sexual health is a right that everyone deserves.
The charity provides UK-wide services, including a free telephone helpline (THT Direct) for anyone with sexual health worries, online services for people living with HIV (myHIV) and a much-needed Hardship fund.
In Scotland we offer the only free and confidential postal testing service for anyone worried about HIV, Fastest Direct. It is the only service of its kind anywhere in the UK. We also provide local services, face-to-face, in local communities across Scotland and from our centres in Aberdeen, Dundee and Glasgow. We offer STI and blood borne virus testing through our Fastest clinics in these locations and at community events throughout the year.
Our work is not glamorous and often perceived with stigma, which makes it difficult to raise money to fund our vital services. We get no govenment funding for our work; for example, our national postal testing service is funded through donations.
We want to change how HIV and sexual health is seen. We want to make Scotland a safer, healthier, happier place that is better informed and more relaxed about good sexual health.
