Do you work or live in St. Albert? St. Albert Community & Social Development is hosting ASIST Training for those who work or live in our community. The training takes place March 5 & 6th 8:30-5:00 both days.
Participants must attend the full 2 days in order to receive certification.
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for **everyone—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.
Virtually anyone age 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.
