FARGO — A two-day workshop in Fargo in June will focus on reducing the incidence of suicide in the community.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, also called ASIST, is shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, according to a news release from FirstLink.

The in-person training takes place at Bremer Bank, 1444 45th St. S. in Fargo, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on June 8-9.

Cost is $240, and participants must attend the entire time, both days. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. on June 3.

Developed by LivingWorks Education Inc., the ASIST model teaches effective suicide intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.


The training is divided into four learning modules: attitudes, knowledge, intervention and resources. Skills and principles are illustrated with case studies, videos, role-play simulations and the Suicide Intervention Handbook.

The course is preapproved for certain Continuing Education Units in North Dakota. More information and registration can be found at firstlink.regfox.com/asist-622-fargo.
