This is a two-day event taking place April 8–9, 8:30am–4:30pm. By registering for this workshop, you are committing to attending both days.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop.

*This session requires participants to complete a supplemental Qualtrics form as part of registration. After requesting approval in MyTrack below, please complete the following form:
