WEEKEND 2 Day Workshop    –    DUNEDIN CITY

+ASIST – The Suicide First Aid course for everyone.

Just like a first aider can make an assessment about injuries deciding if a visit to the doctor or an ambulance is required, an +ASIST Suicide First Aider will use tools and skills to assess if a person needs immediate help and/or hospitalisation, emergency counselling or a simple connection to family or friends.

You will learn to:
+ Recognise suicidal signs through changes in behaviour
+ Confidently raise the issue of suicide
+ Know what to say and assess risk and safety needs
+ Know where to access further support and other professional assistance

The workshop is for everyone.

Suicide First Aid is suitable for administrators, HR personnel, mental health professionals, nurses, midwives, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counsellors, youth workers, police, correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, volunteers, community members, whanau / fanau, friends, and significant others.

* Please note: There are limited subsidised rates and limited free spaces available for Students, Maori, Pasifika, Rural, Whānau / fanau community members.
