Upcoming Lifeline Ballarat Training
Lifeline Ballarat has a range of training options available to the local community.
Attend an ASIST workshop and learn to apply a suicide intervention model. It will help you to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide. You will then learn to explore and connect with the person in ways that understand and clarify the risk, increase their immediate safety and link them with further help.
When: Friday and Saturday March 1 and 2, 2019 from 8:45am-5:00pm.
