Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

Saturday, December 14th & Sunday, December 15th

9:00am  - 4:30pm both days

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.
