Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Through the ASIST programme, I teach Suicide First Aid skills to anyone who may come into contact with a person at risk. ASIST was pioneered by LivingWorks Education in Canada and is based on the world’s most widely used Suicide Intervention Model.

Recognised by the Department of Health, ASIST is becoming an essential course for community care providers and continues to grow as the leading Suicide First Aid programme. As well as challenging stigmas around suicide, ASIST:

The Suicide Intervention Model risk review improves the flow of information and communication between agencies and individuals, especially where referrals to secondary health services are necessary. ASIST builds confidence and knowledge and has saved many lives all over the world.

I also provide training in SafeTALK (Suicide Alertness For Everyone), a half-day training programme that can be a precursor to ASIST training. ASIST and SafeTALK have been widely adopted and are among the most highly regarded mental health courses available today.
