The Vital Core Life (VCL) team believes that individuals, communities, organizations and governments at all levels should collaborate in the promotion of suicide intervention initiatives. We are approaching influencers and decision makers (i.e. community champions) who can help us advocate for public awareness regarding the global suicide health crisis.
Our primary focus is to offer the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop to organizations and to the communities that they serve. The people we train will act as "lifeguards" (i.e. community heroes) on the lookout for those at risk.
Our secondary focus is to offer additional trainings to helpers, persons-at-risk and others in the community. These focus on equipping people (i.e. community role-models) with tools and strategies that aid in prevention and postvention efforts. This liberates them to live full vital lives.
Finally, our team helps facilitate efforts to form
support groups and campaigns that raise public awareness..
ASIST is an internationally recognized workshop that is offered to all formal and informal community helpers. Our master-trainers are qualified and registered through LivingWorks Education Inc.
