2018 Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
Attend a two day workshop 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.
Our next ASIST workshop will be held on Friday and Saturday February 23 and 24, 2018.
The event flyer is here. The cost is $330.00 (GST incl) per person. A light lunch is included on both days.
