More information on ASIST 11

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.

Since its development in 1983, ASIST has received regular updates to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, and over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop. Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk and is a cost-effective way to help address the problem of suicide.

ASIST Creators Livingworks hope that ASIST will be utelised as 'Mental Health First Aid' and that the community will begin to see its benfit much as they do CPR Training and Medical First Aid within workplaces and the Community.
