Suicide Intervention Program 

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.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

9:00am  - 4:30pm both days

You must complete both days to be certified

The aim of ASIST is to help caregivers become ready, willing and able to provide emergency first-aid to persons at risk of suicidal behavior. During the two-day workshop, participants will examine their attitudes about suicide, learn how to effectively recognize and estimate the risk of suicide, and develop new and/or reinforce existing intervention skills.

ASIST is by far the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide intervention skills training in the world.

The workshop prepares caregivers to competently intervene with a person at risk of suicide. Caregivers master suicide first aid for reasons similar to those for learning CPR heart saver or basic physical first aid. Advanced skills can then be layered on with ASIST providing a common foundation.

 

A certificate is given to all participants who complete the full workshop.

What is Mental Health First Aid Certification? 

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved.

The MHFA Canada program aims to improve mental health literacy and provide the skills and knowledge to help people better manage potential or developing mental health problems in themselves, a family member, a friend or a colleague.
