For FREE, earn the same credential that many military officials and health workers receive. It boosts your resume and communication skills—and requires NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE.
“I’m just a burden on everyone.”
“No one would miss me if I were gone.”
“Everyone would be better off without me.”
When someone you love—or even someone you barely know — says something like this, you break out in a sweat. What do I say? How do I help? Are they serious? How do I handle this?
But don’t worry. You can be prepared to help when someone is experiencing distress. This training gives you simple, straightforward ways to help, plus lots of good resources that are just a call or click away.
Learn the skills to prevent suicide. Most people considering suicide share their distress and their intent. You can learn to see and respond to these invitations to help.
Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk.
