Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Learn how to comfortably and competently work with those who are feeling desperate, hopeless, and are thinking of suicide to help them stay safe from suicide.

ASIST is an evidence-based, 2-day intensive and interactive workshop designed to build skills in de-escalating a suicidal situation and building a safety plan.
Just as CPR skills make physical first aid accessible, suicide intervention skills make it possible to increase hope and safety—necessary skills for anyone in a helping role orworking with higher-risk populations. 

This advanced training is ideal training for faith leaders, CIT/law enforcement officers, mental health providers, school counselors, medical professionals, chaplains, corrections staff, teachers, coaches, veteran support staff, social workers, and community volunteers.
