We have two organisations offering training this spring:
Prima Housing Group
Prima would like to do 1/2 day Basic Suicide Prevention for Trainers training sessions for groups and are looking for expressions of interest from people who might be interested in this training. The training is free. If you are interested please get in touch with Jenny Devon, Tenancy Sustainment Officer from Prima Housing: Email [email protected] or Call 0792 181 4374
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop – ASIST can be learned and used by anyone. The workshop dates are 11th and 12th April 2019. The course costs £165 pp, places are limited, but there will be some funded places.
