ASIST Training: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) prepares personnel to provide suicide first aid interventions. It is an intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help participants recognize and review risk, and intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. It is by far the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide intervention training workshop in the world.
ACE: All Army suicide awareness training has at its core the Ask, Care, Escort (ACE) model for identifying and supporting someone who may be struggling. ACE Cards can be ordered from the Public Health Command e-catalogue.
