ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two day, skills building workshop that provides suicide first aid interventions. Be you a Professional, a volunteer, an informal helper, a carer or community member, ASIST helps you become ready, willing, and able to directly support someone who is having thoughts of suicide and increase their suicide safety.

These interventions look to prevent suicidal thought leading to suicidal behaviour and are underpinned by the idea that many people who are thinking about suicide will find some way to signal their intent.
