Date published: 06/07/2017

BAVO, one of the leading training providers in Applied Suicide Interventions Skills Training (ASIST) across Wales,ASIST participants holding up certificates have had the pleasure to recently upskill 20 more community members to help ensure we have suicide safer communities.  

ASIST is a two day suicide ‘first aid’ workshop that teaches how to intervene and save a life from suicide. Over two million people around the world have participated in this award winning programme and nearly 2,500 trained specifically by BAVO.

BAVO’s Chief Executive Officer and Master Trainer Heidi Bennett said: “Most people thinking about suicide don’t actually want to die, but they need help deciding to stay alive. Often these people considering suicide share their distress and their intent, but very discreetly. 

ASIST training will help you see and respond to these invitations for help, give you the confidence to ask about suicide if you are  concerned about someone's safety and provide you with the tools to help prevent the immediate risk.”
