Event description

Description

ASIST is a two day intensive, in depth course designed to give the participants the skills to intervene in any suicide situation. They will learn to connect to the person, listen out for ambivalence and finally help the person to keep safe. Attendance at both days, which are consecutive, is compulsory for the certificate but is also healthy given the subject.

This course deals with suicide on a practical level and may release unwelcome and/or unpleasant feelings leading to distress. If you have recently experienced a completed or attempted suicide by friends or family or are currently dealing with your own thoughts of suicide, please do not sign up.

If you have any special requirements please use the 'other information' box when booking your place.

Please note that this event is free for anyone who lives or works in East Lothian. If you do not fulfil this criteria then there is a fee of £80. We will contact you once signed up to verify you meet the criteria.
