ASIST: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training is a two-day, interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide life-assisting first-aid interventions. This workshop is open to all caregivers, formally designated or not; adults and youth 16 plus.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • Understand how beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions
  • Understand a person who is thinking about suicide’s story about suicide
  • Recognize turning points that connect the person to life
  • Conduct a safety assessment and develop a plan that will keep the person thinking about suicide safe for now
  • Confirm the person thinking about suicide’s commitment to the safe-plan and their intent to follow it through.

The role of ASIST in a Suicide-Safer Community:

ASIST caregivers complete the process that safeTALK helpers start, providing life assisting, suicide first-aid intervention.

“I use ASIST in virtually every crisis situation, in both of my roles as a volunteer and employee…thank you for this life changing program.”
