ASIST

In LivingWorks ASIST, people learn to apply a suicide intervention model. It helps caregivers recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide. It then explores how to connect with them in ways that understand and clarify that risk, increase their immediate safety and link them with further help. Over 80,000 people in Australia have attended ASIST which is available in all states and territories.

Virtually anyone aged 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
  • Powerful audio-visual learning aids
  • Group discussions
  • Skills practice and development
  • A balance of challenge and safety

ASIST has saved and changed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world.
