Event description

Description

Welcome – and thank you for your interest in this event. The Reach UR Life (RUL) program at the Native Americans for Community Action, Inc. (NACA) is offering a free series of suicide alertness and prevention trainings throughout 2019. One of these trainings is ASIST, a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Learning Goals and Objectives -

ASIST participants learn to:

  • Understand the ways that 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 suicide prevention resources in the community at large
  • Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

Participants will need to attend the 2 full days in order to receive a completion certificate.

RSVP is required. Seating is limited to 14 participants.

As with all suicide prevention trainings, the RUL program requires at least 8 participants to host the training. If there are less than 8 participants, then NACA reserves the right to cancel the training.

If you are unable to attend the training, please cancel your RSVP through Eventbrite.
