World Suicide Prevention Day: 10th September 2016

In the UK in 2014, 6122 people died by suicide

It is estimated that 1 in 20 people have thoughts of suicide at some point in their life.

How many people do you walk past, or see every day? 80, 100, 200? To think that out of these up to 10 of these people could be having thoughts of suicide or have had thoughts previously is really quite startling!

It is quite possible, you know someone that has had thoughts of suicide or been affected by suicide

Do you have the skills and confidence to respond to thoughts of suicide?

Do you have the skills and confidence to complete an intervention with a person at risk of suicide?

Want to learn lifesaving skills?

To coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) Harmless will be delivering;

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

 27th and 28th September 2016 £150

ASIST is a 2 day intensive training programme that teaches participants life assisting skills to be able to complete an intervention with a person at risk.

The focus of this is to identify what can be done to keep a person ‘safe for now’ while longer term safety measures are explored. It uses a framework that supports the caregiver to work through an intervention and create a safety plan.

Responding and supporting someone at risk of suicide can be extremely distressing and anxiety provoking. ASIST can give you the confidence to respond to these distressing disclosures and most importantly, teaches us that by providing that little bit of hope to a person at risk, that recovery is possible and indeed, very likely.
