ASIST is a two-day, highly participatory workshop in which participants learn to use a suicide intervention model to identify individuals with thoughts of suicide, seek a shared understanding of reasons for dying and living, develop a safety plan based upon a review of risk, and learn how to provide active follow-up.

  • Recognize that caregivers and persons at risk are affected by personal and societal attitudes about suicide.
  • Discuss suicide in a direct manner with someone at risk.
  • Identify risk alerts and develop related safety plans.
  • Demonstrate the skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide.
  • List the types of resources available to a person at risk, including themselves.
  • Make a commitment to improving community resources.
  • Recognize that suicide prevention is broader than suicide first-aid and includes life promotion and self-care for caregivers.
