Co-Founder of SOS – Silence of Suicide, Yvette Greenway will be completing Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) in March 2016 at The Kaleidoscope Plus Group’s head office, Hawthorns House.
ASIST is a two day suicide first aid interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions.
The emphasis is on teaching suicide first-aid to help a person at risk stay safe.
Yvette is thrilled to have the opportunity to undertake the training.
She said: “I’m very much looking forward to completing ASIST especially as SOS aims to facilitate open discourse and raise awareness of the impact of suicide on both those who have suicidal feelings and those who have been bereaved by suicide.”
ASIST is approved by the World Health Organisation with over 1 million people worldwide successfully completing the course and facilitated by The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.
