ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)
ASIST teaches Suicide First Aid skills to anyone who may come into contact with a person at risk, through the most widely used Suicide Intervention Model in the world.
Recognised by the Department of Health, ASIST is fast becoming an essential tool for all community caregivers. With over 750,000 people trained world wide, ASIST continues to grow as the primary suicide first aid program.
It is an effective tool for challenging stigma and taboo around suicide.
Helps break down barriers between organisations & individuals working with people at risk. Encourages communication and development of a common language Gateway for community networking and increasing knowledge of local resources.
Skills are applicable in many "helping" situations, not just where suicide is a risk
The Suicide Intervention Model risk review improves the quality of information and communication between agencies and individuals, especially where referrals to secondary health services are necessary. Evaluations have shown:
the workshop increases knowledge and confidence to respond to a person at risk. Intervention skills are retained over time and are put to use to save lives.
"ASIST equips you with the skills, knowledge & save a life"
"Suicide, like mental illness and disability, still remains a stigma - even in 2016. Therefore this course is a "must" for anyone working in the area of health & wellbeing"
"You don't need to be a "counsellor" to be good at helping a person at risk of suicide. With this programme, anyone can learn these skills"
Recent participant "I enjoyed ASIST, I thought it was very well planned. It wasn't as heavy as I thought it would be, it enlightened me to the risks and the invitations made by a person thinking of suicide. The trainers are very approachable, it is a serious course but we also shared laughter"
