ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers who are 18 years of age or older, recognize risk for suicide, intervene to prevent immediate harm and link persons at risk to the next level of care.
ASIST is often used by people in a variety of “front line” positions. It is for all caregivers (any person in a position of trust). It is suitable for school counselors, psychologists, social workers, administrators, nurses, case workers, police/correctional/juvenile justice staff, soldiers, organizations working with military/veterans, social service staff, foster care staff, clergy, advocates for elderly and all ‘natural helpers’ who work in the field of human service (regardless of the population served).
