A 90 minute, online training that helps learners develop foundational skills to recognise when someone may be thinking of suicide and connect them to further help.

Learn to talk openly about suicide, reach out to someone with thoughts of suicide,  and connect them with further support in a half-day, face-to-face workshop. This more in-depth training also allows you to practice your skills and helps you to address myths and barriers around suicide.



Recognised as the gold standard in suicide intervention training, LivingWorks ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is a two-day, interactive and in-person workshop in suicide first-aid. You will learn to become ready, willing and able to intervene with someone who has thoughts of suicide, and help them develop a safety plan, access help and find hope.



LivingWorks Faith is an online program that empowers Christian faith leaders to increase safety from suicide and minister to those who have experienced suicide loss. Faith training provides hope-centered, safety-focused interventions, and enriches life promoting ministries in support of purposeful living and self-care.



Meaning “Indigenous Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training”, I-ASIST provides a culturally relevant framework for participants to learn how to use a unique 6-task model to provide a suicide first-aid intervention, work with someone to develop a personalised safety plan to keep safe-for-now and connect with further help. This course is run over 2.5 days and offers a more in-depth skillset in comparison to the shorter safeYARN workshop.



In this half-day workshop, participants learn how to identify and connect to someone having thoughts of suicide, and how to help them keep safe, access support and find hope.

Suicide Prevention Training

What is it?

Suicide prevention skills training – sometimes referred to as gatekeeper training – is one of the most effective prevention approaches. When people are thinking about suicide, they almost always express their pain in ways that invite others to reach in and offer help. Training empowers everyone to recognise the signs of suicide, and to know how to help someone to keep safe, access further support and find hope.

Who is it for?

Suicide prevention skills training is for everyone. LivingWorks training courses are designed to empower a community-based approach to suicide prevention. We enable everyone to play a role, creating powerful safety networks to support entire communities.

Why do I need it?

By training as many people as possible throughout communities and workplaces, we can create safer environments for us to live, work, play and learn. Anyone, regardless of background or experience, can learn skills to start the conversation, to help keep someone safe and to connect them to further support.
