Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
Brook RED is a community mental health and suicide prevention service. As a completely peer-run organisation, many of our team members have a lived experience of suicidality and we believe that ASIST is an outstanding model for supporting people. We deliver ASIST from a lived experience perspective and this is what makes our training particularly engaging and powerful.
What is ASIST?
ASIST is a two day interactive workshop in suicide first aid where people learn to apply a suicide intervention model. ASIST helps people to recognise when someone may be having thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will increase their immediate safety and link them with further help.
