About ASIST

ASIST 2 day interactive training equips individuals to become an ASIST-trained worker. ASIST workers can be compared to the first aid officer on site. ASIST participants will learn how to talk to a person contemplating suicide with the intention of reaching “safety for now”, preventing the immediate risk of suicide while developing a “safe plan” and connecting to other help. Over 1,000,000 people world-wide have completed the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk. This workshop is specifically aimed at those working in the building and construction industry.

Participants must attend the full 2 days to be eligible for this internationally recognised suicide prevention certification. A minimum of 10 participants is required.

Workshop Features:

  • Presentations and guidance from two MATES in Construction WA trainers registered in ASIST training

  • A scientifically proven intervention model that is industry relevant

  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids

  • Group discussions

  • Skills practice and development

  • A balance of challenge and safety

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is NOT suitable for those who have been recently bereaved by suicide as it is focused around helping others at risk. Please contact the office if you have any questions or would like to discuss whether the workshop is suitable for you - 08 9463 6664
