Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide.
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.
ASIST makes a difference
As the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop, LivingWorks’ ASIST program is supported by numerous evaluations including independent and peer-reviewed studies. Results demonstrate that ASIST helps participants to become more willing, ready, and able to support someone at risk of suicide.
In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:-
•Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions.
•Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk to meet their individual safety needs.
•Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it.
•Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large.
•Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care.

"The ASIST training I received from Uplifted Wellbeing was invaluable. Sarah was a fantastic trainer and I am much more confident in dealing with potential service users who may be suicidal because of this training. I would definitely recommend Uplifted Wellbeing."
