Safe talk and assist workshop
Published 05/09/2013 | 05:26
MOST people thinking about suicide signal and share their pain – they offer us opportunities to respond.
Suicide Intervention Training can help all of us to see, hear and respond to these invitations. It can also increase our confidence to ask about suicide when someone's safety may be in the balance. If someone is at risk, suicide first aid prepares us to work with them to increase their immediate safety and get further help.
This workshop is for all caregivers (any person in a position of trust), including professionals, paraprofessionals and lay people.
The course will be held on Tuesday, September 24, from 7pm-10pm in the James O'Keeffe Institute.
After completing the Safe Talk course you will then be free to take part in an Assist Workshop. This two-day ASIST workshop is for persons aged 18 years or older who are interested in supporting people who may be at risk of suicide.
This workshop will be held on October 15/16 from 9am-5pm on both days. If interested in attending or for further information please contact Helen at (029) 60633.
Please note places are limited, so early booking is advisable.
