Learn the skills to help save a life. Suicide is preventable. Anyone can make a difference.
Attend the award-winning ASIST workshop and learn to:
– Recognize people at risk of suicide,
– Talk to them, hear their stories, and understand their situations, then
– Help them stay safe with a life-affirming intervention.
This two-day ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshop is open to both professionals and college/university students in the helping profession.
Why take ASIST?
LIFE-SAVING: Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. By giving participants the skills to help friends, family members, colleagues, and clients stay alive, ASIST supports suicide-safer communities.
TRUSTED: ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training workshop in the world. Over 100,000 people attend ASIST each year in more than 30 countries.
ENGAGING: ASIST is a dynamic, hands-on workshop that uses adult learning principles. It includes presentations, discussions, and audiovisuals, plus simulations to practice intervention skills.
PROVEN: ASIST works. A major 2013 study showed that the ASIST intervention process significantly reduces thoughts of suicide and helps people at risk feel more hopeful about living.
