Want to know what others thought of our training, here is some feedback from some of the delegates that have attended……

“As a result of attending the ASIST Suicide prevention course I feel I would be considerably better prepared to provide an initial response to someone who was considering ending their life. The model used in this course provides a clear framework to helping someone in this situation in a way that flows like a natural conversation. As a mental health lead for my organisation I would say anyone in a frontline public service would benefit from this course”


‘The trainer touching on her own experiences made me see situations a lot clearer’

General self harm

‘Excellent training. Open, honest and interactive! Incorporating real life and experiences to help understanding’

General self harm

‘This training has helped me to see that talking honestly and openly about suicide is vital when helping people and that it isn’t something we should be afraid of’


‘This was, without a doubt, the most engaging, informed, well presented session I have ever attended, delivered by someone, brutal with the truth and able to hold the room captivated. If all lectures were like this, I would find a new job attending lectures!!’

General self harm

‘Good to have the chance to talk about the impact on us as professionals, as well as focusing on the student.’

General self harm

‘I feel a lot more confident in the support I will offer to people with mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and psychosis after having attended the 2 day training. Very informative and insightful.’
