Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

We strive to create safer communities by providing training to increase awareness and prevent suicide. Our highly experienced, registered trainers deliver the internationally recognised LivingWorks Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop to equip individuals to assist those at risk of suicide to keep safe and access further support.

 

We deliver suicide prevention training workshops to mental health and welfare organisations, emergency services, community groups, corporate businesses and individuals.

 

Training is delivered at our facilities in Hawthorn East, or we can come to your office if you have suitable facilities, for larger group bookings.
