About this Event

We are pleased to offer tickets to these workshops at NO COST to participants. Your enrolment is proudly supported by the Gympie, North Burnett and Maryborough Suicide Prevention Groups and funded by the Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast Primary Health Network (PHN) as part of the National Suicide Prevention Trial. Tickets to ASIST are usually $449 per person.

Suicide is preventable. Anyone can make a difference.

Attend the award-winning ASIST workshop and learn to:

  • recognize people at risk of suicide,
  • talk to them, hear their stories, and understand their situations, then
  • help them stay safe with a life-affirming intervention.

The two-day ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshop is open to anyone 16 or older. Widely used by both professionals and the general public, ASIST offers something to every participant, no matter how experienced.

A certificate of attendance will be issued. Participants must complete the entire 2 days’ training in full. It is important that no content be missed. It is strongly recommended to clear other commitments for the training day in advance.

Why take ASIST?

LIFE-SAVING: Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. By giving participants the skills to help friends, family members, colleagues, and clients stay alive, ASIST supports suicide-safer communities.

TRUSTED: ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training workshop in the world. Over 100,000 people attend ASIST each year in more than 30 countries.

ENGAGING: ASIST is a dynamic, hands-on workshop that uses adult learning principles. It includes presentations, discussions, and audiovisuals, plus simulations to practice intervention skills.

PROVEN: ASIST works. A major 2013 study showed that the ASIST intervention process significantly reduces thoughts of suicide and helps people at risk feel more hopeful about living.
