Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training: ASIST

ASIST provides Suicide First Aid skills to anyone who may come into contact with a person at risk. It gives an introduction to the most widely used Suicide Intervention Model in the world, a model which is applicable in all situations requiring help.

ASIST training was brought into Cornwall and Isles of Scilly in 2009 as part of a wider strategy to prevent suicides, and in response to requests for training in how to assess risk and how to talk about suicide
