ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants 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.

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of the workshop you will be able 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 in ways that 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.
  • Recognise other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care.

Fee: $50 plus GST (Negotiable)
