About the Event

This suicide prevention program teaches lifesaving skills:

  • Ask About Suicide: Recognize suicidal risks, thoughts and behaviors. 
  • Seek More Information About the Individual: their risk factors, warning signs and protective factors
  • Safety First!
  • Secure Access to Lethal Means
  • Know How and Where to Refer someone at risk to care

Like C{R or the Heimlich maneuver, the fundamentals of AS+K? are easily learned. And like CPR and the Heimlich maneuver, the application of AS+K? may save a life.

AS+K? About Suicide to Save a Life:

  • Is intended to offer hope through positive action, (not a form of counseling or treatment).
  • Teaches the public to recognize the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of people in psychological distress and what action to take to prevent a possible tragedy. 

Workshops are approximately 2 hours in lenght and have a capacity around 25 participants.

Workshops are open to any interested individuals, faith based groups, professionals, or community groups. You may register individually or schedule an AS+K? workshop for your group.
