Oct 3-4, 2015, 8:30am - 4:30pm. Optimist Hall, 475 Salisbury Street Oshawa. ASIST is a two-day (15 hour) interactive workshop that teaches how to intervene and save a life from suicide. Over one million people have taken the workshop. Most people thinking about suicide don’t actually want to die, but they need help deciding to stay alive. You don’t need any prior training to attend ASIST – just a willingness to make a difference.
