Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day workshop for caregivers and community members who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over one million caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop. Participants include but are not limited to clergy, school professionals, mental health professionals, law enforcement, health care providers and community members.
There will be small group discussions and skills practice that are based upon adult learning principles, as well as powerful videos on suicide intervention. For more information about ASIST, visit www.livingworks.net.
This is a free training sponsored by the Suicide Prevention Task Force of Central Kansas Partnership. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
