ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is the first suicide prevention programme to be listed under the new, more stringent standards found in the revised National Registry for Evidence-based Programmes and Practices (NREPP), an evidence-based repository and review system designed to provide the public with reliable information on mental health and substance abuse interventions in North America.
ASIST is listed based upon outcomes from Dr Madelyn Gould’s study of ASIST training with US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline workers. Dr Gould and her colleagues found that suicidal callers to the Lifeline who received an ASIST intervention were less depressed, less overwhelmed, less suicidal and more hopeful than callers who received an intervention by another method.
To view ASIST’s listing, visit the NREPP website at www.nrepp.samhsa.gov. Additional information about evidence in support of ASIST can be found in the Research and Evaluation section of the LivingWorks website.
PAPYRUS provides ASIST training to a wide range of organisations. For more information visit https://www.papyrus-uk.org/training/training-options/applied-suicide-intervention-skills-training
