Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Every year more people die by completing suicide than from all the armed conflicts around the world and, in many places, than those dying in traffic accidents. As many as 6% of the population worldwide have serious thoughts of suicide each year. The figures for Rochdale show on average 20 deaths each year, with those aged 35-49 having the highest suicide rates. How can further deaths and injuries be prevented? How can we support people to choose life when something prevents them from seeing a ways forward?

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice dominated course designed to teach suicide first aid to help a person at risk stay safe, and seek further help as needed.

The following dates for the ASIST training are as follows:  

20th & 21st November   * 5th & 6th March 2019
