ASIST makes a difference As the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop, LivingWorks’ ASIST program is supported by numerous evaluations including independent and peer-reviewed studies. Results demonstrate that ASIST helps partic¬ipants become more willing, ready, and able to inter¬vene with someone at risk of suicide.
In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to: • Understand the ways personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions. • Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs. • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it. • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating sui¬cide prevention resources in the community at large. • Recognize other important aspects of suicide preven¬tion including life promotion and self-care.www.upliftedwellbeing.co.uk
