The Kaleidoscope Plus Group’s service user involvement strategy, People In Mind (PIM) have been awarded funding courtesy of the Postcode Community Trust to use for the Staying Safe with PIM Project.
The project, will give opportunity to 25 PIM Members and Service Users who have suffered with mental ill health to undertake suicide first aid training.
The suicide first aid training, known as Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (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.
ASIST is approved by the World Health Organisation with over 1 million people worldwide successfully completing the course.
If you would like to be one of the individuals to undertake ASIST, please contact Kirstie Barnes on 0121 565 5605 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
