Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day skills-building workshop that prepares caregivers and community members of all kinds to provide suicide first aid interventions. Professionals, volunteers and informal helpers all need to know how to help persons with thoughts of suicide in ways that increase their safety.

As an ASIST-trained first aid intervention caregiver, you will be better able to:

  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • understand how your beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions
  • seek a shared understanding of the reasons for thoughts of suicide and the reasons for living
  • review current risk and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behaviour for an agreed amount of time
  • follow up on all safety commitments, accessing further help as needed

Additional information about the ASIST workshop can be found here. (update link)
