"It (ASIST) delivered as promised. I didn’t think I would come away with any useful tools, but learned a wealth of knowledge. Also, because of the way it was taught, I feel confident that I have the new skills and also that I will not forget them. The trainers were excellent. Thank you!" - Attendee
"This is an excellent training for anyone who works with people. All people, all ages, all socio-economic levels, can be at risk for depression and suicidal thinking. This great training gives you the tools to be able to comfortably engage someone in a conversation that will lead them to get the help they need. Medical professionals, coaches, parents, youth pastors and workers, Scout leaders, teachers, elder caregivers - anyone can learn good skills from this excellent training." - Jan Bassier, Attendee
