About the Event

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. This workshop is being offered free of cost through the Northern Minnesota Suicide Prevention/Crisis Text Line Grant (participants are responsible for any associated meal and/or travel costs) and provides 14 clock hours (certificate available at the end of the second day). The workshop will take place April 29 and 30, 8:30am-4:30pm both days.

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

- Understand the ways that 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 

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