ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day training designed for members of ALL care-giving groups to improve their abilities to intervene with a person at risk of suicide until either the immediate danger of suicide is reduced or when additional assistance or resources can be accessed.  

ASIST training is especially helpful for non-licensed human service professionals, college/graduate students, support staff in human service agencies, community volunteers, volunteer coordinators in human service agencies and to anyone with a desire to help make our community suicide safe.
