ASIST training with a great group

This was my second time at ASIST,  Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training. I needed to take this again as part of my certification for being a registered safeTALK trainer.

This group of trainees was so engaged and while many of them knew each other, they made me feel like family. People weren’t constantly on their phones and they all wanted to get it right and do the best job they could. They wanted to be there and be part of a suicide safe community.

There was lots participation and even laughter. Because when you are immersed in a subject this serious, there have to be moments when you let off steam.

Thank you to my friend and fellow Beacon Tree board member, Karen, for the food and hospitality.
