The challenge

Every year more people die by suicide than from all the armed conflicts around the world.

In any year as many as 6 per cent of the population have serious thoughts of suicide.

How can Mind Cymru prevent further deaths and injuries?

How can we support people to choose life when something prevents them from seeing a way forward?

The workshop

Mind Cymru now provides the internationally recognised Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), which is already well established in Canada, USA, Australia, Norway, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

ASIST provides practical training for caregivers seeking to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

Participants often include:

  • people concerned about family and friends
  • natural helpers and advisers
  • emergency service workers
  • counsellors, teachers and ministers
  • mental health practitioners
  • workers in health, welfare and justice
  • community volunteers
