ASIST - Suicide Intervention Training Course

The ASIST training course is an in-depth two day session for 15-25 people.

ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) equips participants with the skills and insights to help them support vulnerable people and signpost them towards appropriate support. Included in the course:

  • Discussion on UK suicide statistics
  • Video of real-life scenarios in which doctors, police and social workers share experiences of suicide crisis situations
  • Information about how to identify signs and steer individuals towards appropriate support
  • Roleplay exercises providing hands-on experience of the ‘pathway’ technique

“Really clear materials and training.”

“Very well prepared, calm, good voice and engaging.”

Anyone learning the skills of suicide alertness and safe suicide intervention has a skill, quite literally, for life.
