Event description
Aim: To provide an understanding of the factors that might precipitate suicide and intervention strategies using the ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) model

Training will challenge common myths and enable candidates to develop an understanding of links between suicide, depression and other mental illnesses/disorders. The training will cover the terminology of suicide and provide information on the warning signs and practical strategies on how to support the person who may feel suicidal. The course encourages candidates to respect the decision-making rights of individuals and to understand the importance of supporting the person to talk about suicide. The course also covers how to meet the immediate needs of the person as well as undertaking longer term planning and risk management tasks.
