After two days in Camden, Olly’s Future have trained seven more people in ASIST including four of our own members: Ayesha, Caroline, Otis and Rory.
ASIST is an internationally recognised course that equips people with the skills to help those who are suicidal. The training was delivered by Ann alongside, Chukes, an ASIST trainer and former probational monk who also attended Christ’s Hospital in the seventies!
Our ‘newest’ Suicide First Aiders now join the two million trained world-wide. Together we are making a real difference.
We’ve reflected heavily on the events of the past two weeks that have highlighted the structural racism still rife throughout society. This has sparked constructive dialogue at Olly’s Future around ways we can better address and embed diversity and inclusion initiatives in our suicide prevention work.
In response to Covid-19, we have worked hard and fast, along with suicide prevention training company Start the Conversation, to move our 90-minute workshop online. The result is Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools, which we are delivering on Zoom on the dates enclosed. Click here
