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

  • January 14, 15 at Contact
    Monday, January 14, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
    Tuesday, January 15, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
    (You must attend both days)
    There is no cost to attend this workshop.
  • Workshop will be held at Contact Community Services, 6311 Court Street Road, East Syracuse.
If you’re interested in attending our next ASIST class, please contact Lindsey Treat, 315-251-1400 ex. 104 or email ltreat@contactsyracuse.org.

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.
