Event Details

Members of the Network are invited to a free two-day training session in the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) protocol, scheduled for Monday, July 22, and Tuesday, July 23, at the Youth Villages office in Memphis, located at 5515 Shelby Oaks Drive.  The session will be presented by the Tennessee Lives Count (TLC) Project.

ASIST is an intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated suicide prevention training program intended for professional caregivers--mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, and community volunteers.  However, the session will be open to anyone who expresses an interest.

The program helps participants understand the impact which attitudes have on the intervention process, then develops their suicide prevention skills through observation, case studies, supervised simulations, and role-playing exercises.  It provides them with information about local resources, and encourages them to local resources into helping networks.  Participants completing the program receive a Suicide Intervention Handbook and a laminated wallet card featuring intervention and risk estimation principles.

The sessions will run from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM; a lunch break is scheduled, but lunch itself will be on your own. Participants must attend both days of the training to receive certification.

ASIST can provide you with the skills you need to identify people in crisis and prevent them from harming themselves or others.  We encourage you to register at the next possible opportunity, and we look forward to seeing you there.
