Suicide Intervention Program - Capital Region Mental Health & Addictions Association

Free Online Program

En/ Fr

This information is meant to provide basic knowledge to prevent someone from dying by suicide. We strongly encourage further training with courses such as ASIST and Mental Health First Aid. This in no way will replace professional mental health services. It is important to seek professional assistance. This project is to encourage conversations about suicide and mental health.

This program was made possible by the COVID -19 Emergency Community Support Fund provided by the Government of Canada and United Way of Central NB.

Cette information vise à fournir des connaissances de base pour empêcher une personne de se suicider. Nous encourageons fortement la poursuite de la formation avec des cours tels que ASIST et les premiers soins en santé mentale. Cela ne remplacera en aucun cas les services professionnels de santé mentale. Il est important de demander l'aide d'un professionnel. Ce projet vise à encourager les conversations sur le suicide et la santé mentale.

Ce programme a été rendu possible grâce au Fonds de soutien communautaire d'urgence COVID -19 fourni par le gouvernement du Canada et Centraide du centre du Nouveau-Brunswick.

ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
LivingWorks Education

February 25th & 26th, 2023

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for everyone 16 or older—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, 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. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk. 


Workshop features:

  • Presentations and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers

  •  A scientifically proven intervention model

  •  Audiovisual learning aids

  • Group discussions

  •  Skills practice and development

  • A balance of challenge and safety
