ASIST Training – September 9-10, 2021

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and we are pleased to announce an ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) training on September 9-10. 

About ASIST
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day interactive workshop on suicide first aid. Participants must attend both full days of the training to successfully complete the workshop. Participants will learn to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and respond in ways that help increase their immediate safety and link them to further help. ASIST aims to enhance one’s ability whether a caregiver, case manager, clinician, or family member, to help a person at risk avoid suicide. This workshop helps people apply suicide first aid in many settings. It is recommended that participants wait a minimum of one year before enrolling in an ASIST workshop if they have experienced a recent suicide loss.

Enrollment Process
Contact Bob White at rwhite@atcaa.org to enroll in the ASIST training. Participants must commit to attending both full days of the training. The ASIST training is free for Tuolumne County residents, thanks to a Tuolumne County Behavioral Health Department grant through Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) funding.
