ASIST- Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
The Rappahannock Area Community Services Board (RACSB) now offers the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, commonly known as ASIST. In this two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid, participants learn to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and to work with the individual to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Over the course of their two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

- Understand the ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions

- Provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs

- Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it

- Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large

- Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

The cost is $30 per participant for lunch and refreshments both days of the trainings. Training materials and facilitation are provided thanks to the generous support of the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.

Space is limited to 15 participants. Only register if you are able to attend and fully participate the full two days and are not “on-call” for other duties during that time.
