ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a 2-day, interactive, skills-based workshop that prepares people to provide suicide first aid using a unique 6-task model.

It provides a suicide first-aid intervention model for relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. You can play a vital role in creating Networks of Safety from suicide. We believe that ASIST provides an opportunity to advance your mental health first aiders or wider teams understanding of suicide awareness and prevention.

In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

 Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions

 Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs

 Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it

  Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large

 Recognise other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care


We aim to provide a safe learning environment.

The learning process includes:

• Trainer presentations and powerful videos to stimulate discussion and support learning

• Extensive opportunities for skills practice

• Shared participant experiences that enrich learning

• Trainer-facilitated workgroups to optimise participation

• Direct and honest discussion about suicide is encouraged. While sometimes challenging, this prepares helpers to openly approach people with thoughts of suicide, and to help them keep safe.


You will learn how to help someone thinking about suicide develop a personalised SafePlan to keep safe-for-now and connect with further help.


You will learn to apply a Safety Framework to guide the development of this SafePlan through a collaborative helping relationship. You will also consider how personal and community attitudes about suicide affect someone’s openness to seek help and your ability to provide it.

This workshop will increase your willingness, confidence, and capacity to provide suicide first aid.
