Suicide is a major public health concern that affects individuals, families, and communities worldwide. However, suicide can be prevented with the right skills and training. That's where LivingWorks Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) comes in. In this blog, we'll explore how ASIST training can empower individuals to save lives and promote mental wellness.
ASIST Training improves participant skills and readiness
ASIST training equips participants with the skills and knowledge needed to recognize the signs of suicide, provide a skilled intervention, and develop a safety plan to keep someone alive. Through interactive learning, participants gain confidence in their abilities and become better equipped to respond to a suicide crisis.
ASIST Training provides a safe and supportive environment
Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and emotions in a supportive environment. ASIST trainers provide ongoing support to ensure that participants feel safe and cared for throughout the training. This unique design allows participants to be fully engaged and supported.
ASIST Training interventions shown to increase hope and reduce suicidality
Research has shown that ASIST interventions increase hope and reduce suicidality among individuals who are struggling with suicidal thoughts or behaviors. ASIST training provides participants with evidence-based tools and strategies to help individuals in crisis find hope and support.
ASIST Training shown to increase general counseling and listening skills
ASIST training not only teaches participants how to respond to suicide crises but also improves their general counseling and listening skills. These skills can be applied to a range of situations and can help participants become more effective helpers and advocates for mental wellness.
