Event description


ASIST is a two-day interactive course that enables participants to become more confident and able to identify risk and intervene to prevent immediate risk of suicide.

ASIST is intended as “suicide first aid” training. It is an evidence-based and cost effective intervention that can be delivered in a wide range of settings.

ASIST Training Outcomes
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
• Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
• Understand how beliefs and attitudes can effect suicide interventions
• Understand a person at risk’s story about suicide as well as recognise turning points that connect a person to life
• Conduct a safety assessment and develop a plan that will keep the person at risk safe-for-now
• Confirm the person at risk’s faith in the Safe plan and their intent to follow it through
• Practice as a registered ASIST caregiver
