Training courses provided by PAPYRUS in 2012
Suicide is a leading killer of young people in the UK. Further, there are hundreds of young people who attempt suicide who never hit the headlines. Suicidal thinking is very common. Impulsivity in young people can shift thinking into behaviour with little warning. That's one reason why we need safe people to recognise when to intervene and offer suicide first aid.
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, known as ASIST, is a market leader in suicide prevention programmes worldwide. It has been accessed by over 1 million people and offers a universal suicide interventon model to participants. PAPYRUS provides this training in order to create suicide safer communities for and with young people.
Attendance at both days is expected. You will work with others in a safe learning environment using a number of learning modes. Please book your place early to avoid disappointment.
We can also offer you training for groups in your organisation at a local venue. Contact us for details.
Cost: £250 for the two days programme including refreshments and course materials. Concessions available for charities and PAPYRUS members.
Outcomes: You will be more ready, willing and able to intervene effectively in the Iives of young people and others who may be suicidal.
