What will you learn?

In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to: 
• Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions 
• Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs 
• Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it 
• Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large 
• Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

The ASIST training is facilitated by two experienced, registered Master Trainers.

How will you learn?

The training is a mixture of presentation and group work. Activities are structured around the ASIST intervention model and provide applicable, hands-on skills practice. Participants will learn to adapt to the specific circumstances of a person at risk and work collaboratively to help them stay safe. Participants are encouraged to reflect on and share their own attitudes about suicide and suicide intervention. This helps them understand how their perspectives may affect their role in providing help to a person at risk. By encouraging honest, open, and direct talk about suicide, ASIST helps prepare to discuss the topic with a person at risk.

The cost of this course includes refreshments & lunch on both days.
