ASIST TRAININGS: ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is held for two full 8 hour days. It is limited to 15 participants. Due to the intense nature of the training, ASIST is held in-person. COVID social distancing and health and safety protocols will be in effect. The location of the training will be announced days prior to the training to prevent confusion due to possible last-minute changes.
We are excited to offer virtual trainings to the community. However, much care is needed to provide a safe environment with support to those who may experience overwhelming emotions due to the topic of suicide.
• All participants must use their cameras during the training. The videos must clearly show each participant’s face.
• Group attendance is not allowed to virtual trainings. One face per video, please.
These requirements will be enforced. We appreciate every participant’s cooperation in keeping each other safe. Thank you.

Most people are surprised to learn that they’re much more likely to encounter someone who’s thinking about suicide than someone who needs CPR. Yet suicide is preventable: with the right skills, anyone can help save a life.
