ASIST is the result of more than 25 years of research and development and is the most widely used suicide intervention program in the world. This is a two-day, 15 hour, interactive workshop. Learn how to recognize opportunities to help, assess risk of suicide, apply a suicide intervention model, and practice skills.

Appropriateness of training attendance is at the discretion of the ASIST trainers. Cost: $150 (includes materials). The Eventbrite registration ticket will say “free” as the program is only used to manage registrations.  However, payment IS required.

Complete attendance for the full  two days is required in order to be considered ASIST trained.  It is understood that outside commitments may require an attendee to leave a few minutes early.  This can be arranged with the trainer the day of the training.   However, if early departure of more than one hour is needed, attendees  should consider either readjusting their schedule for complete attendance or to take a future training.  Full two day attendees receive a certificate of attendance and therefore, the declaration of being ASIST Trained as well as     Continuing Education Units (CEU's).      Food: Morning coffee and morning and afternoon snacks will be provided.
