Who We Are Latest Events ASIST - September 2021 ASIST - the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop! We strive to create safer communities by providing training to increase awareness and prevent suicide. Our highly experienced, registered trainers deliver the internationally recognised LivingWorks Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop to equip individuals to assist those at risk of suicide to keep safe and access further support. "It was excellent to practice having the conversation with someone at risk. It assisted in my confidence, and language used to minimise the negative connotations to suicidality but emphasise their struggle." Suitable for anyone above the age of 16, anyone can learn the skills to intervene and save a life from suicide. We deliver suicide prevention training workshops to mental health and welfare organisations, emergency services, community groups, corporate businesses, and individuals. Training is delivered over two consecutive days at our head office in Hawthorn East. For larger group bookings, we can come to your office if you have suitable facilities.
