June 28 & 29, 8:30 – 4:30

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide, and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop; Anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model. ASIST receives regular updates to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice.

Over the course of this two-day workshop, participants will learn to:

·         Understand ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions.

·         Provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs.

·         Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan, and the actions required to implement it.

·         Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large.

·         Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention, including life-promotion and self-care.
