Event description

Description

Applied Suicide Prevention Training (ASIST) free of charge for Edinburgh staff working with at risk clients in Edinburgh.

About this Event: Non-attendance may result in being refused access to future courses for a year.

ASIST is delivered free of charge on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council to all staff (including non-council staff from the NHS, 3rd Sector, Police, HMP Saughton, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service) working with at risk people in Edinburgh.

ASIST is a two-day practical workshop developing skills through observation and supervised simulation in large and small groups. Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is intended as 'suicide first-aid' training. ASIST aims to enable helpers (anyone in a position of trust) to become more willing, ready and able to recognise and intervene effectively to help persons at risk of suicide. With over one million people trained in suicide intervention skills, ASIST is by far the most widely used suicide intervention skills training in the world.

Please be aware you will be required to participate in all parts of the training, including role play while being observed by fellow trainees, who will provide positive feedback only.

Those with recent or still emotional experience of suicide are asked to consider whether this training is appropriate for you at this time.

If anyone is currently having thoughts of suicide the Samaritans can be phoned on 116 123.
