ASIST is a 2-day Interactive workshop in suicide first aid. The workshop helps people apply suicide first aid in many settings- with family, friends, co-workers, and more formal helping roles.  We are limited to an enrollment of 30 attendees. 

Attend the award-winning ASIST workshop and learn to:

  • Recognize people at risk of suicide,
