Assist suicide intervention background  

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for everyone 16 or older-regardless of prior experience-who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

What is ASIST 11?

Since its creation in 1983, ASIST has undergone numerous updates to reflect the latest research and feedback from the suicide prevention community. ASIST 11 became the current version of ASIST in June 2013. While older versions of ASIST still provide proven life-saving skills, ASIST 11 features several significant upgrades. For those trained in ASIST 10 or an earlier version, signing up for an ASIST 11 training is recommended. In the meantime, here is a quick overview of some of the differences, and a guide to how those trained in ASIST 10 or earlier versions can work with those trained in ASIST 11:

Working with ASIST 11-trained caregivers

ASIST 11 is fundamentally the same as any version of ASIST, and remains true to ASIST principles. If you need to work or consult with people who have taken ASIST 11, expect them to:

  • be open, honest and direct about suicide,
  • exercise care in expressing their own values about suicide,
  • do whatever they can to respect a person at risk's decision-making rights,
  • appreciate the importance of letting the person at risk talk about suicide,
  • appreciate that some part of a person at risk wants to live,
  • value collaboration with the person at risk,
  • consider things that might threaten the person at risk's safety,
  • develop a plan that fits the immediate safety needs of the person at risk, and,
  • make sure that the person at risk understands the plan and is committed to carrying it out.
