ASIST – Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. You will learn how to prevent suicide by recognising signs, provide a skilled intervention, and develop a safety plan to keep someone alive.


In this two-day workshop, participants will learn to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone. Anyone aged 16 and older can learn the skills to intervene and save a life from suicide.

Workshop activities are structured around the ASIST intervention model and provide applicable, hands-on skills practice.

Participants will receive a 20-page workbook, wallet card, and stickers. Participants also receive a certificate upon completing the workshop.
