ASIST Delivered at VISTA

February 23, 2017

Recently our Trainers, Marisca Seinen and Fiona O’Donnell, had the opportunity to deliver the 2-day ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) to staff at VISTA. VISTA staff all work in residential settings with high-risk adolescents, and their knowledge and experiences were a privilege to hear.

What incredible work they do being substitute family for young people who, for various reasons, can’t be with their own. As one respondent said in their feedback: “I really enjoyed the training, Thank you. I now feel confident about talking to someone about suicide and really hearing what’s going on for them. This could be life-saving”.
