Another 9 participants have completed Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) at our Head Office, Hawthorns House.
The participants who completed the training were part of our service user involvement group, People In Mind (PIM).
ASIST is a two day suicide first aid interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions.
The emphasis is on teaching suicide first-aid to help a person at risk stay safe.
ASIST is approved by the World Health Organisation with over 1 million people worldwide successfully completing the course.
The course was facilitated by Rachael Thompson and Sue Vincent.
