Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

The ASIST workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over one million caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop. 

Participation in the full two days is required. Enjoy small group discussions and skills practice that are based upon adult learning principles. Experience powerful videos on suicide intervention. Feel challenged and safe. Learn suicide first aid.

Is regular re-training required?

Some organizations have specific requirements concerning re-training for retaining skills and/or status. If you took your initial ASIST workshop through an organization, inquire with that organization first. Generally, ASIST TuneUp, a half-day training refresher, is suggested within three years of the ASIST workshop, with the full two-day ASIST workshop to be re-taken every five years.
