ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk 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—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone.

In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

• Understand the ways 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

All materials and meals will be provided. IF you have specific dietary requirements, please bring your own meals and snacks.

We understand COVID may still be a concern. In order to address this, we have ensured ample spacing to create more safety. Masks can be worn, but are not required. We also encourage you to consider your own needs so that you are comfortable.

Dress in layers to allow for comfort!
