ASIST

Every life is a life worth living. If you would like to be able to provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person who may believe their life is not worth living, then consider Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE

Anyone working directly with suicidal persons eg child protection, hospital staff, counsellors, mental health teams, youth and community workers

COURSE CONTENT

ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

ASIST participants learn to understand how personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions; and how to provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person at risk.

Participants will also learn how to create and implement an effective suicide safety plan; and how to identify other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care.

Since its development in 1983, ASIST has received regular updates to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, and over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop. Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk.

Let’s prevent death by suicide together and together, let’s promote a life worth living.
