ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills

Are you expected to help people in crisis or struggling to cope with life's challenges?

Learn how to comfortably and competently work with those who are desperate, hopeless, and thinking of suicide to help them stay safe from suicide. Conversations with those at risk of suicide require skill and collaboration. Safety plans are critical to keeping those at risk of suicide safe in case mental health services are delayed or are not obtained. ASIST is an evidence-based two-day intensive and interactive workshop designed to build skills in de-escalating a suicidal situation and building a safety plan.

Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, ASIST builds advanced skills to help build hope and safety – skills that anyone working with at-risk populations needs.

This is an ideal training for faith leaders, CIT/law enforcement officers, mental health providers, school counselors, medical professionals, corrections staff, teachers, coaches, veteran support staff, social workers, and community volunteers.

Attendance both days is required. CEUs are available. Email Colleen Carpenter with questions.
