ASIST

Suicide Intervention Training

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is the world's leading suicide intervention workshop. Participants learn to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide, apply a suicide first-aid intervention model and respond in ways that helps to increase their immediate safety and link them to further help.

Virtually anyone aged 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver and learn the skills to intervene and save a life from suicide. Professionals, workplaces, as well as members of the community have all found great value in ASIST training.
