Suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play. With workshops that teach life-saving skills LivingWorks is here to help.
LivingWorks ASIST is the gold standard 2-day interactive skills-based workshop that prepares participants to provide suicide first-aid using a unique 6-task model.
LivingWorks ASISTprovides a suicide first-aid intervention model for anyone who wants to learn life-saving skills. It can also be incorporated into more formal, professional helping roles.
LivingWorks ASIST participants will be better able to:
- Provide suicide first-aid intervention with increased willingness, confidence, and capacity,
- Develop a safety plan to keep the person thinking about suicide safe-for-now.
- Apply a safety framework to guide the collaborativedevelopment of this safety plan.
