ASIST is a 2-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST is the most widely used and researched suicide intervention skills training in the world. It 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.

Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop – anyone can learn and use the ASIST model.

Course Learning Objectives:

After attending the full ASIST workshop, participants will be better able to:

  • Be alert to suicide and to be able to identify people who have thoughts of suicide
