In August Tom and Ann delivered the ASIST Suicide Intervention workshop to a group in the Westcourt Centre, Belfast. Our Co-trainers were Alison Armstrong from Ascert and Cormac McArt, Director of the Westcourt Centre.
The group feedback was excellent and they highly recommend that anyone working in the public arena does this course. Suicide is still the largest killer by far of young men in the West.
Make sure your school, ministry or community group gets better protection by signing up to complete the Suicide First Aid course – just 2 days of your life could save someone else. #SuicideSaferCommunities
Next courses running are 2-3 October and 17-18 November at Woodeaves. Contact Ann or Tom to secure your place. Places are limited.
O God, we thank you for the life of Edmund Rice.
He opened his heart to Christ present in those oppressed by poverty and injustice.
May we follow his example of faith and generosity.
Grant us the courage and compassion of Edmund as we seek to live lives of love and service.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
