Applied Suicide Intervention Skills
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model. Since its development in 1983, ASIST has received regular updates to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, and over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop. Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk and is a cost-effective way to help address the problem of suicide.

Emergency First Aid CPR
Before registering for the upcoming one day Emergency First Aid & CPR course, we would like to take a moment to share a few important notes. Our goal is to help you feel more knowledgeable about first aid practices and better equipped to deal with a situation where First Aid is required. Performing First Aid requires a certain degree of physical activity which will mean that during the course you will be asked to demonstrate skills required toward certification. For example, you are required to be on your knees for a length of time while performing CPR. This means that you must be able to be on your knees and/or be able to use your hands / arms to provide repetitive compressions for two minutes. If you have any concerns about the level of activity involved in the course, or if you are unsure if you should participate in any aspect of the course involving physical activity, please discuss this with your immediate supervisor prior to registration.
