STRADA is the leading national workforce development organisation supporting those working with and affected by drug and alcohol misuse.  They work to improve the competence of staff working in the substance misuse field in order that the interventions available locally aid the recovery of those affected by substance misuse.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

This free 2 day course is aimed at anyone over the age of 16 who would like to learn how to identify a person at risk of suicide, how to intervene effectively, and how to get specialist help. Although professionals may deal with this issue routinely, often family, friends, volunteers or work colleagues are in the best position to spot that something is amiss.

The ASIST course has been developed over 20 years and is delivered throughout the world to a set standard and format by qualified trainers. Participants must ensure that they can commit to attending the 2 full days of training.
