Testimonials from participants of The ASK Workshop Online:
"This has been the most informative suicide intervention training I have experienced. I really liked the break-out rooms and the fact that we got to practice the conversations we may encounter with parents regarding their child's thoughts of suicide. The facilitators were wonderful."
"The Workshop was fantastic. I'm so appreciative that it's available for those working with children."
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Training) - 2 trainers, 2 full days. An interactive workshop that will give you the skills and confidence to work with individuals at risk of suicide.
