Why should I come to ASIST Training? 

ASIST is a two day workshop aimed at preventing the immediate risk of suicide.

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. Most people thinking about suicide don’t want to die, but they need help deciding to stay alive.  You don’t need any prior training to attend ASIST just a willingness to make a difference.
