The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) course is one of many tools the Navy uses to promote suicide prevention, and Naval Medical Center Portsmouth wants to train as many people as possible. ASIST is a monthly, two-day course that teaches advocates how to do an intervention to help an individual through whatever situation is causing them to struggle. It also teaches advocates to recognize warning signs, if any are given, and give them confidence to ask the question -- "Are you suicidal; are you thinking about dying?" The course was developed by a civilian company, Living Works. For more information, visit the Living Works website. For information on ASIST workshops in your area, contact the local chaplain or CREDO office.
