In England and Wales, almost three million people have thoughts of suicide every year. But with proper training, suicide may be prevented.
The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for people (caregivers) who want to feel more prepared in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
This two day course is intensive, interactive and practice dominated and is designed to help delegates recognise risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
