ASIST in Hungary



This past week saw the introduction of ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) to Hungary. After completing the course last weekend I was very happy to act as interpreter for Joyce Borgs and Alan Briscoe from Mind Wales, in the first ever Hungarian language ASIST workshop. The workshop was organised by the Élet Mentálhigiénés Egyesület (Life Mental Health Society) in Budapest. The Society operates one of the 24 hour crisis lines in Hungary. Thanks again to Joyce and Alan for their hard work and to the organisers, Domonkos Buza and Mihály Kucsera.
