The aim of ASIST is to help caregivers become willing, ready, and able to provide emergency first aid to persons at risk of suicidal behavior. During the two-day workshop, participants will examine their attitudes about suicide, learn how to effectively recognize suicide, work with a safety framework and develop new and/or reinforce existing intervention skills. ASIST also addresses the need to develop a cooperative network among participants since caregivers often have to work together to prevent suicide. All types of caregivers will benefit from participation in the two-day ASIST. Over 1,000,000 caregivers have received this training. More than 99.9% recommend ASIST to their colleagues. A number of program evaluation studies provide additional evidence of the value of ASIST.
