LivingWorks ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop where participants will learn to apply a suicide intervention module. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide, recognise how to connect with them 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—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone.
