safeTALK and ASIST 

safeTALK is open to uniformed service members and their dependents, DOD civilian employees and contractors, and retirees, safeTALK is a three-hour workshop that prepares anyone 15 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.

CREDO Okinawa offers both safeTALK and ASIST as requested and provides these trainings at no cost to the command, hosting them at either the command’s training spaces or our own.  Please contact us for more information or to schedule a training.
