ASIST is designed to help all caregivers become more willing, ready and able to help persons at risk. Suicide can be prevented with the help of caregivers.
Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide prevention intervention develops the skills used in suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help aregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
The workshop is for all caregivers (any person in a position of trust). This includes professionals, paraprofessionals, and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy and community volunteers.
