Your stories...

  • I thought the ASIST course was extremely professionally put together and delivered. The trainers were sensitive to us as trainees and handled this emotive topic brilliantly. I now feel much more confident and able to deal with suicide interventions. Very worthwhile course!

    ASIST Course member
  • I found the course both interesting and inspiring. I've recommended the course to colleagues in CABs over in the North East . I have informed all the staff here that I completed the course and have advised them to let me know if they have a client who appears suicidal or expresses a wish to die.

    ASIST Course member
  • I felt that the delivery and content were very good and couldn't be improved upon.

    MHFA Course member
  • I want to get my team trained up as this is very useful for police officers

    MHFA Course member
  • It was knowing that caring, listening and wanting to help was the most important thing for helping someone, rather than thinking I always had to have the right answers. The course has opened my eyes to my potential to support others.

    MHFA Course member
  • The 2 day course completely changed my thoughts and the way I speak with young people I come into contact with. I see beyond what we " think" we see.
