Overview:

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident, and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide, including those in mental health and/or substance use crisis. Over a million caregivers including mental health and addiction professionals have received this training. Just as “CPR” skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for life assisting suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide and provide safety-for-now. The participants will be provided local resources including mental health and substance use disorder.

The workshop is designed for all caregivers (any person over age 15 in a position of trust). This includes professionals, paraprofessionals, and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, youth workers, substance use disorder counselor, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, and community volunteers. In ASIST, sophisticated helping concepts are translated into generic language so that different types of caregivers can learn together. ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training program in the world.
