Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
ASIST is a two-day, interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide life-assisting, first-aid intervention. In ASIST, people learn to apply a suicide intervention model. It helps caregivers recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide. It then explores how to connect with them in ways that understand and clarify that risk, increase their immediate safety and link them with further help. Over 80,000 people in Australia have attended ASIST which is available in all states and territories as well as internationally.
