learn to help save a life from suicide.
Just as people trained in CPR and the
Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands
of lives each year, people trained in QPR
learn how to recognize the warning
signs of a suicide crisis and how to
question, persuade, and refer someone
to help.

Learn How to:

  • Recognize someone in crisis

  • Review the risk of suicide

  • Reach out and offer support

  • Apply a suicide intervention model

"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
