ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is intended as 'suicide first-aid' training. ASIST aims to enable helpers (anyone in a position of trust) to become more willing, ready and able to recognise and intervene effectively to help persons at risk of suicide.

Give us a break! (GUAB) is an 8-week group programme for 10-14 year olds who are coping with experiences of loss, negative change or bereavement.

safeTALK - Suicide Alertness Skills

safeTALK is intended as "suicide alertness" training. safeTALK teaches community members to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide intervention resources.

Scottish Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a nationally accredited 2-day training course designed to give participants the knowledge and skills to recognise the signs of mental ill-health and support someone to seek the right help.


suicideTALK provides a solid foundation for suicide prevention. It aims to reduce stigma around suicide and promote awareness within the community.

Suicide Prevention Training During COVID-19

During these unusual times we are unable to offer face to face suicide prevention training (ASIST, safeTALK & suicideTALK).

Until we can recommence this training we would like to highlight the online training offered by the Zero Suicide Alliance (a collaborative of NHS Trusts, businesses and individuals all committed to suicide prevention in the UK). The training has an evidence base and follows the principles of ASIST and Safetalk.
