About the workshop

ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

In ASIST, people learn to apply a suicide intervention model. It helps caregivers recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide. It then explores how to connect with them in ways that understand and clarify that risk, increase their immediate safety and link them with further help.

This workshop is available to anyone 16 years or older who would like to learn lifesaving suicide first aid skills. Workshop is suitable for health workers, service providers, carers of suicidal people, and general community.

Materials and a light morning and afternoon tea will be provided.

A collaborative approach with health and education to prevent risk of suicide.

Cost: $50 (normally $450)
