9:00 am - 5:00 pm
ASIST is a two-day, interactive skills-building workshop that prepares caregivers of all kinds to provide suicide first aid interventions. Professionals, volunteers and informal helpers all need to know how to help persons with thoughts of suicide in ways that increase their suicide safety. ASIST is designed to help all caregivers become more willing, ready and able to help persons at risk.
As an ASIST-trained first aid intervention caregiver, you will be better able to:
- identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
- understand how your beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions;
- seek a shared understanding of the reasons for thoughts of suicide and the reasons for living;
- review current risk and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behavior for an agreed amount of time;
- follow up on all safety commitments, accessing further help as needed.
Lunch is provided both days.
LMSPC operates solely on the generosity of the community. Any profits that may be generated from workshops is used to fund the activities of LMSPC.
