2018 Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
Attend a two day workshop on Friday February 23 and Saturday February 24 2018 and learn to apply a suicide intervention model. It helps caregivers recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide. It then explores how to connect with them in ways that understand and clarify that risk, increase their immediate safety and link them with further help.
The event flyer is here. The cost is $330.00 (GST excl) per person. A light lunch is included on both days.
Keep watching the website for more ASIST workshop information or ask to be on our mailing list.
