The Applied Suicide Interventions Skills Training (ASIST) is an intensive, participatory workshop where you will develop practical skills in suicide intervention. ASIST helps you to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and how to work with them to increase their immediate safety and get further help.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for people aged 12 to 44 years and men are three times more likely to die by suicide. Most people will be affected by the suicide of someone they know at some point in their life.
This is the second time that ASIST has been run specifically for Carers at Carers NT. On the first occasion it was performed sensitively and with great success.
To be eligible you must be a registered Carer with Carers NT.
