ASIST : Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
As a peer-run organisation, many of our team members have a lived experience of suicidal distress, and we believe that ASIST is an valuable model for supporting people. We deliver ASIST from a lived experience perspective which makes our training particularly engaging and powerful.
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.
