Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

A two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid

ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Learning goals and objectives

Over the course of their two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

  • Understand the ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
  • Provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs
  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it
  • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large
  • Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

As the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop, the ASIST program is supported by numerous evaluations including independent and peer-reviewed studies.

March 28th - 29th 8:30 am - 4:30 pm (both days)

May 23rd - 24th 8:30 am - 4:30 pm (both days)
