The AS+K? About Suicide to Save a Life Training of Workshop Leaders is designed to equip participants to lead AS+K? Workshops in their communities and workplaces.  This 8 hour training equips Workshop Leaders with the content, delivery protocols and workshop administration skills to successfully host a 1.5 to 4-hour AS+K? workshop for adults who interact with youth or adults at risk for suicide.


The program provides participants with an overview of the basic epidemiology of suicide and suicidal behavior, including risk and protective factors. Participants are trained to recognize warning signs—behaviors and characteristics that might indicate elevated risk for suicidal behavior—and how to intervene with a person they think might be at risk for suicide. Using role-playing, participants practice asking other participants about suicidal thoughts, feelings, and intentions. Participants are trained to respond to someone expressing direct suicidal communication by seeking emergency care and includes a discussion about lethal means safety. Participants are also trained to gather more information about a person’s risk and take action consistent with that risk if they identify a person who is not acutely suicidal. In longer workshops, participants are provided an overview of state laws related to suicide and trained to access best practice suicide prevention information online.
