O’AHU!

You are invited to be a part of Hawaiʻi’s suicide prevention and awareness efforts!

ASIST:

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

This TWO‐DAY workshop will equip participants to respond knowledgeably and competently to persons at risk of suicide. Participants learn and practice
skills in identifying and responding to people at immediate risk of suicide. Just as “CPR” skills make physical first aid possible, training
in suicide intervention develops the skills used in suicide first aid. This is a highly interactive workshop that will give you the training
that you need in order to be a care
giving resource within your community.

 

Thursday, March 3rd AND Friday, March 4th, 2016 7:45 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on BOTH
DAYS
at Queen Liliʻuokalani Children’s Center’s
Honolulu Unit (1300A Halona Street, Honolulu, Hawai‘i, 96817)

 Reminders:

  • Attendees must be present for BOTH FULL DAYS to receive certification.
  • Please be on time late‐comers may be turned away.
  • Because there is no cost to participants, meals are NOT provided.
