Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

The Counseling Center is offering an ASIST workshop on January 4th and 5th.  We have provided this training to 178 people over the last four years and this is what they say:

•    Felt more prepared to help someone at risk of suicide
•    Felt more confidant that they could help someone at risk of suicide
•    Do a suicide intervention if someone said they were suicidal

Should you take this training?
    Do you work in or are planning to work in a field where you meet with people one on one?
    Are you in a field or planning to work in a field with teenagers, emerging adults, or the elderly?
    Are you in a medical field or planning to be in the medical field?

We would love to see you at our training!
