ASIST is a two-day, two-trainer workshop designed for members of all care-giving groups. The emphasis is on teaching suicide first-aid to help a person at risk stay safe and seek further help as needed. Participants learn to use a suicide intervention model to identify persons with thoughts of suicide, develop a safe plan based upon a review of risk, be prepared to follow-up, and become involved in suicide-safer community networks. This training was also developed by LivingWorks Education. www.livingworks.net
safeTALK is a program that teaches participants to recognize persons that might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. The ‘safe’ of safeTALK stands for ‘suicide alertness for everyone.’ The TALK letters stand for the practice actions that one does to help those with thoughts of suicide: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe. This training was developed by LivingWorks Education.www.livingworks.net
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer, it’s an emergency mental health intervention that teaches lay and professional gatekeepers to recognize and respond positively to suicide warning signs and behaviors. QPR is theory based; it recognizes that even socially isolated suicidal individuals have contact with potential rescuers. This one hour training will teach you what the warnings signs are, how to instill hope and get help for the person at risk. QPR reaches out to high-risk people within their own environments and does not require suicidal people to ask for help. www.qprinstitute.com
Counseling services are available for individuals thinking that suicide is the only way out. If someone cannot afford the cost of counseling, is under or not insured, and is not covered by Medicaid, funds are now available through the Eagle County Community Service grant, for free counseling. Our goal is to reach these people before they make a suicide attempt, or if an attempt has already occurred, to assure that they get the help they need.

Our community efforts are currently being implemented in our schools, workplaces and community settings where there is potential to be impacted by suicide. We deliver our knowledge of suicide prevention to anyone in our community who is interested or in need of education.
