ASIST Training Course Dates (April, July & November)

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for everyone 16 or older—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk.

Sunday, 10th June 2018 - St Albans Half Marathon

To say we're pleased to be the St Albans Half Marathon 2018 Community Chosen Charity would be an understatement! OLLIE was in the running alongside many amazing local charities, all deserving of the win. We are incredibly grateful for all your votes and support. We nearly broke Facebook and Twitter.

The run up to the Half Marathon next June is going to be very exciting as we work with the event's organisers to make the most of this fantastic fundraising opportunity. We'll keep you posted over the coming months, but there is one way you can show your support now...

We have a batch of FREE PLACES to give away. Don't worry - you don't necessarily need to run the half marathon - the places can be used on any of the races on the day. Walking a half marathon or running/walking 5k would be equally wonderful! If you're interested, please email [email protected] as soon as possible.
Take part and raise money for OLLIE!
