Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) - Cairns
ASIST Training equips individuals to become an ASIST worker. These workers can be compared to the first aid officer on site. ASIST workers will talk to a person contemplating suicide with the object of making this person “safe”. Using simple skills an ASIST worker will listen to the persons’ concerns and respond to them appropriately with the object of reaching a “contract” or a “safe plan” for the worker.
