Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
15 hours (two days)
Recommended for:
  • Hotline counselors
  • Emergency service workers
  • Mental health practitioners
  • Clergy and other caregivers
  • Community members

The in-depth and interactive ASIST workshop teaches skills used on the Contact Hotline and National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, including risk assessment and intervention for people at high or immediate risk of suicide. The skills can be used on the phone or in person.

CLASSES
If you’re interested in attending our next ASIST class, please contact Lindsey Treat, 315-251-1400 ex. 104 or email ltreat@contactsyracuse.org.

The next ASIST trainings will be

  • December 12 and 13 at Contact
    Tuesday, December 12, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
    Wednesday, December 13, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
    (You must attend both days)
    The training is free.

We will post dates and registration information soon for the ASIST class in January.

Participants learn to:

  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide and recognize their invitation for help
  • Reach out and offer help
  • Understand how your beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions
  • Conduct a safety assessment and develop a safety plan for a person at risk
  • Confirm a person’s intent to follow through on the safety plan
  • Link an at-risk person with community resources
Evaluations have shown that the workshop increases caregivers’ knowledge and confidence to respond to a person at risk of suicide, that intervention skills are retained over time and that they are put to use to save lives.
