Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training – Kimba
March 25 @ 9:00 am - March 26 @ 5:00 pm
ASIST is a two day, interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide life-assisting, first aid intervention. This training provides knowledge and skills to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide and teaches you how to respond using the practical Pathways for Assisting Life (PAL) guide.
Regardless of prior experience or training, anyone 16 years or older can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. During the two-day workshop, participants learn to identify a person with thoughts of suicide, intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide and apply ASIST methods to help reduce suicidal feelings. Caregivers will become more willing, ready and able to intervene with a person with thoughts of suicide.
