ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop that trains professionals and other community providers in suicide "first-aid". Participants are trained how to recognize and assess the potential risk of suicide. This workshop also equips the participant with the intervention skills to keep the person safe until the appropriate level of ongoing help can be accessed.

World Class Training

ASIST is the most widely used, acclaimed, and researched suicide intervention training in the world. Over 1500 Oregonians have taken ASIST in recent years. In addition to learning the knowledge and skills of suicide intervention, participants report improved comfort, confidence, and competence doing interventions. ASIST is not therapy. It is "first-aid" designed to keep a person safe until they can receive further intervention.

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize attitudes about suicide
  • Identify suicide factors and estimate risk
  • Intervene with a person at risk to make them safe
  • List resources available to a person at risk
  • Commit to help coordinate social support for a person at risk
