What is ASIST? 

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

A two day, skills building workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions.

PAPYRUS uses the very latest version of ASIST (version 11.1)

What happens at ASIST? 

ASIST trains participants to reduce the immediate risk of a suicide and increase the support for a person at risk. The workshop helps participants recognise what a person at risk may need from others in order to keep safe and get help.

Who should attend ASIST?

ASIST is for everyone (over the age of 16). PAPYRUS aims to train as many varied professionals and members of the community including; natural helpers and advisers, emergency service workers, counsellors, teachers, ministers, mental health staff, workers in health, welfare and justice, parents/relatives and community volunteers.

How does ASIST help prevent suicide?

As an ASIST trained first aid intervention caregiver, you will be better able to:

  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • Seek a shared understanding of the reasons for thoughts of suicide and the reasons for living
  • Review current risk and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behaviour
  • Follow up on all safety commitments, accessing further help as needed
  • Recognise invitations for help
  • Reach out and offer support
  • Apply a suicide intervention model
  • Link people with community resources
