Applied Suicide Intervention Skills (ASIST) training is a two-day interactive programme in suicide first aid, developed by LivingWorks Education. ASIST provides an evidence based structure to make a first aid response to someone with thoughts of suicide. It is a collaborative model and aims to work with the person to stay ‘safe for now’. The ASIST model can be used by staff working in a range of settings to provide the understanding and skills to intervene effectively. ASIST can also enhance the skills of people with a lot of experience on suicide prevention. The training is endorsed by the Dept of Health and is delivered nationally as part of the national suicide prevention strategy.

Course objectives:

Over the course of the two-day workshop, participants learn to: 

  • Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
  • Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs
  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it
  • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large
  • Recognise other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care
