Welcome

ASIST WORKSHOP

The PEI Firefighters Association is partnering with The Canadian Mental Health Association/PEI Division (CMHA/PEI) to host a 2-day Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) Workshop for Island firefighters.

 

The emphasis of the ASIST Workshop is on suicide first-aid; on helping a person at risk to stay safe and then to seek further help. With this in mind, participants learn to recognize opportunities for help, to reach out and offer support and to apply the ‘pathways for assisting life’ model, linking a person-at-risk to the appropriate resources.

 

Participants’ feedback indicates that the workshop increases caregivers’ knowledge, comfort level and confidence in responding to a person at risk of suicide.

 

ASIST participants often include; workers from health, social services and justice, school counselors, teachers, clergy, mental health practitioners, emergency personnel and people concerned about family or friends.

 

The workshop includes interactive learning techniques, DVD learning aids and skills practice. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate for 14 accredited hours of ASIST training. Costs for this training are subsidized through the Canadian Mental Health Association and with a donation from UPSE Has a Heart Campaign.

 

 

Workshop Dates:

October 28th - 29th 2017

8:30 AM to 4:30 PM
