ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)

You are invited to join Hawai‘i’s suicide prevention and awareness efforts! Register today for ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) which is a TWO-DAY workshop that will equip participants to respond knowledgeably and competently to persons at risk of suicide. Participants will learn and practice skills in identifying and responding to people at immediate risk of suicide. Just as “CPR” skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills used in suicide first aid. This is a highly interactive workshop that will give you the training that you need in order to be a care‐giving resource within your community.

ASIST will take place on Tuesday, May 30th and Wednesday, May 31st from 7:45AM-4PM (both days) at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, 200 West Kawili Street, UCB Room 330.

Attendees must be present for BOTH FULL DAYS to receive certification. Meals will NOT be provided, but there will be ample time to purchase lunch on or off-site. Please be on time – late-comers may be turned away.
