ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training: March 26th and 27th, 2019
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid.
ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Designed for anyone in a position of trust, including service providers, teachers, youth workers, emergency workers, counsellors, faith leaders, community volunteers, family and friends. Participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.
