On Saturday April 27 & Sunday April 28, the Kanata Haven Youth Centre is hosting an Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and we were wondering if there were any Kanata Beaverbrook Community Association members who would like to join us. It's a 2 day course, 10 am - 6 pm, cost is $180 and includes all course material and lunch for both days. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who works/volunteers in (or wants to work/volunteer in) the social service field or with the vulnerable sector i.e law enforcement or security, teachers, coaches, Scout and Guide leaders, staff at retirement residences, group homes etc. You must be 18 or over to attend. I've attached the workshop info sheet & ASIST pamphlet for your reference.
We are keeping the numbers small to help facilitate discussion and skills practice, so there are only 15 spaces available for this training, and registration is on a first come first serve basis. This training is a great way to get the community actively involved in suicide prevention.
If you would like more information on this workshop or the Kanata Haven Youth Centre, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
