Participating with area mental health community members for ASIST training.
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.
These classes are free to take and very valuable if we want to create a community of care and support and prevent suicide. Because it is preventable. We get them free because you raised money at American Foundation of Suicide Prevention Community walks so this is an example of how that money goes back into the community to prevent suicide.
I have already taken SAFEtalk and gotten certification and this was the next step.
