Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
This one day blended workshop CALM (Connect, Ask, Listen, Monitor) aims to start a conversation about suicide; provide you with the tools to recognise the warnings signs that somebody may be suicidal and then to ask about suicide; enable you to have a safe and intentional conversation if the answer is yes. It will also give you the resources to develop a safety plan and then link them into services or supports post your conversation if required. Most importantly, it will teach you how to stay CALM when having this conversation. We deliver the training in a supportive, respectful and inclusive environment, accepting each individual’s differences, with consideration and adaptation for their culturally diverse needs. You obtain a certificate of attendance after completing this course.
Prerequisites: You will be required to complete some pre-course work prior to your workshop.
