Event description

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

ASIST is a 2-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid.

Become better prepared to:
• Recognise when someone may be thinking of suicide;
• Respond in ways that clarify and address suicide risk;
• Understand why suicide thoughts are present;
• Work together to review risk and increase safety; and
• Facilitate links with further help.

Any one of us could face a situation where suicide first aid is needed. ASIST applies in everyday situations with family, friends, co-workers or teammates and in professional roles or volunteering.

In ASIST you will:
• Discuss suicide risk and safety openly and directly;
• Consider how attitudes and experiences affect helping;
• Learn and apply a model for suicide first aid intervention; and
• Share ways to care for and support yourself as a helper.
