Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid and more.

ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may have thoughts 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 – anyone 18 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.

As you will appreciate there are a lot of quality controls and safety factors to consider when delivering training in self-harm and suicide prevention. For these reasons, this training can only be delivered face-to-face. It is therefore not possible to deliver this training during the current lockdown circumstances.
