Arm yourself with the skills in suicide prevention.

ASIST is founded on the principle that everyone can make a difference in preventing suicide. This is a two-day, interactive workshop where participants learn to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. During the workshop, participants will learn to do the following:

• Understand how personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions.

• Provide guidance to people in ways that meet their individual safety needs.

• Identify key elements of effective suicide safety plans and actions required to implement it.

• See the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community.

• Recognize other key aspects of suicide prevention, including life-promotion and self-care.
