The ASIST workshop is for individuals who want to feel more ready and able to intervene during the immediate risk of suicide. This is a two day training where participants will:

  • Explore their own attitudes and beliefs about suicide
  • Learn suicide first aid, using a structured model
  • Practice using first aid in big and small groups
January 23-24, 2016 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm FULL / CLOSED

This four hour training teaches a model focused on suicide alertness and steps to help connect a person with thoughts of suicide with someone trained in suicide intervention (ASIST). Most people with thoughts of suicide do not want to die and invite help. As a trained suicide alert helper, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide
  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person having thoughts of suicide with someone trained in suicide first aid

* Thought not required, SafeTALK may be a better training for someone prior to ASIST
