Delivered by BAVO, this is two day suicide 'first aid course' course. Most people considering suicide share their distress and their intent, sometimes very discreetly. Training will help you see and respond to these invitations for help, give you the confidence to ask about suicide if you are concerned about someone's safety and provide you with the tools to help prevent the immediate risk.

You will learn how to:

  • recognise invitations for help;
  • reach out and offer support;
  • review the risk of suicide;
  • apply a suicide intervention model;
  • link people with community resources.

Core areas covered by ASIST:

  • suicide safer communities;
  • connecting with attitudes and beliefs;
  • exploring pathways for asist life;
  • developing safety plans;
  • practice;
  • community connections and signposting.

Past participants have said:

“In the last two days, I have used ASIST on a man on a bridge and have used ASIST over the phone with an elderly carer. I hope more people engage with this training to increase awareness of suicide prevention strategies.”

“I found the course extremely useful. I feel confident in approaching the topic of suicide now and am pleased to report that I've used the interventions on more than one occasion resulting in positive outcomes. Without the ASIST training I couldn't have done that.”
