FREE ASIST Training in Barrow and Kendal
ASIST is the Gold standard in community suicide prevention training. It teaches participants to recognise when someone may have thoughts 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 don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop – anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.
Please read the course description below before booking. This ASIST is subsidised by Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The Orange Button started out in Lancaster as a simple way of showing people that may be worried about somebody or themselves, that you have received suicide prevention training and know information about where people can access support.
We need your help to influence the aim of the scheme, design the tool kit that people take away with the Orange Button and provide ideas on possible support for Orange Button holders.
Wednesday 20th Nov, 10.00-12.00, Crooklands, Kendal.
