The ASIST workshop equips participants to act as “first responders” to a person at risk for suicide.  Learning this approach to “suicide first-aid” will increase your confidence and competence in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.  Over one million caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive workshop.

This workshop goes above and beyond the typical GMT and expands into the techniques, resources, and skills required to bring a person-at-risk to safely receive the help they need.

Please call the Chaplains office to get more information and find out dates and times of the workshops:
