The ASIST workshop is for: Caregivers (professionals, volunteers, students and family members) who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

Participating in this Workshop will result in: Certification in this 2 day, intensive, interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop.

The goal of ASIST is: to enhance a caregiver’s abilities to assist a person at risk to avoid suicide.

By completing the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss suicide with a person at risk in a direct manner;
  2. Identify risk alerts and develop a safe plan related to them;
  3. Demonstrate the skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide;
  4. Recognize that suicide prevention is broader than suicide intervention and, includes life promotion and self-care for persons at risk and for caregivers

COST: $175.00 per person for a 2 day training (Includes workbook, Suicide First Aid Wallet Card & light refreshments.  An hour is given for lunch, however lunch is not provided.)
