Presented By: Ron Ringo
Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t really want to die – instead, they are looking for a way to work through the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, often inviting others to help them in making a choice for life. ASIST is a resource for the whole community, helps people apply suicide first-aid in many settings: with family, friends, co-workers, teammates, as well as formal caregiving roles. Some people may have previous personal or professional experience with suicide or intervention.
Ron will discuss how to adapt to the specific circumstances of a person at risk by encouraging honest, open, and direct talk about suicide. ASIST will help you prepare to discuss the topic with a person at risk and work to help them stay safe.
