A two-day skill building workshop that prepares participants to provide suicide first-aid interventions.
ASIST trains participants to reduce the immediate risk of suicide and increase the support for a person at risk. The workshop helps participants recognise what a person at risk may need from others in order to keep safe and get help.
As an ASIST trained first aid intervention caregiver, you will be better able to:
Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
Seek a shared understanding of the reasons for thoughts of suicide and the reasons for living
Review current risk and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behaviour
Follow up on all safety commitments, accessing further help as needed
Recognise invitations for help
Reach out and offer support
Apply a suicide intervention model
Link people with community resources
ASIST is for everyone (over the age of 18) and can help both professionals and members of the community such as ; emergency service workers, counsellors, teachers, ministers, mental health staff, workers in health, welfare and justice, parents/relatives and community volunteers.
