Event description

Description

ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants do not need any formal training to attend the workshop. Training is suitable for ages 16 years or older.

This training supports Eastern Melbourne PHN’s place-based suicide prevention trial in the City of Maroondah. There is no cost to attend the workshop, however places are limited and priority will be given to people who live, work or study in Maroondah.

Participants are required to attend both days of the workshop.

Goals and objectives
In this two-day workshop you will learn to:

  • Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
  • Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk
  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it
  • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large
  • Recognise other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

If after registering you find that you are unable to commit to attending both days of training, please cancel your registration through Eventbrite or by contacting events@emphn.org.au or 9046 0300 so your place can be allocated to someone on the waiting list.

If this information has raised concerns for you, we encourage you to seek support by contacting Lifeline on 13 11 14, Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467 or SuicideLine (Victoria) on 1300 651 251

Wesley LifeForce is not a counselling service. Workshops may not be suitable for those recently bereaved by suicide. Wesley LifeForce gratefully acknowledges the funding provided by the Australian Government.
