ASIST

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

 

A two-day interactive workshop to learn suicide prevention skills

 

Support Suicide-Safer Communities… It begins with you

  • Discuss suicide risk and safety openly and directly
  • Consider how attitudes and experiences affect helping
  • Learn and apply a model for suicide first aid intervention
  • Share ways to care for and support yourself as a helper

Interactive learning is simulated through teaching and audio-visuals. Small groups increase opportunities for discussion and skills practice. Attendance at both days is essential.

Become better prepared to:

  • Recognise when someone may be thinking of suicide
  • Respond in ways that clarify and address suicide risk
  • Understand why suicide thoughts are present
  • Work together to review risk and increase safety
  • Facilitate links with further help
