EPiC HOPE suicide prevention and awareness training Courses
EPiC HOPE CIC is the only suicide prevention and intervention non-profit organisation that can deliver this evidence based and life-saving training in the whole of Wigan and Leigh. Learn to talk openly about suicide, reach out to someone with thoughts of suicide, and connect them with further support in a half-day, face-to-face workshop. This in-depth training also allows you to practice your skills and helps you to address myths and barriers around suicide.
The EPiC Method
The EPiC Method is a one-hour interactive session. This course is designed with the understanding that everyone has the potential to make a significant difference and possibly save a life. The course is highly flexible and can be attended either through Zoom or in-person. At the end of this session, you will receive a business sized card summarising the four steps of The EPiC Method for you to carry with you everywhere. The aim is to equip as many people as possible with these potentially life-saving skills.
Recognised as the gold standard in suicide intervention training, ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day, interactive and in-person workshop in suicide first-aid. You will learn to become ready, willing and able to intervene with someone who has thoughts of suicide, and help them develop a safety plan, access help and find hope.
