Event description

Description

ASIST is designed to help all caregivers become more willing, ready and able to help persons at risk. Suicide can be prevented with the help of prepared caregivers.

Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills used in suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

The workshop is for all caregivers (any person in a position of trust), parents and everyone needing to be prepared to help someone at anytime. This includes professionals, paraprofessionals and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, school counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, and community volunteers.

Attendance at both 2-days is required from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm both days.

The training is free. CEUs offered. RSVP required Email Joan at jmullerlyons@frontporchcoalition.org or call 605-348-6692. If you register, please plan to attend. If you register and later have a schedule conflict, please email Joan so that your spot can be given to someone else.
