A four-day suicide prevention training event for Cal State San Bernardino students is being offered by the university’s Institute for Child Development and Family Relations, in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools.

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is free and limited to 30 students. It is scheduled prior to the start of the spring semester, Jan. 17-20, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on campus, and will include training on:

  • In-depth trainings and workshops on suicide prevention
  • Leadership skills development
  • Knowledge about mental health challenges for high-risk populations
  • Networking opportunities with campus and community agencies that provide suicide prevention and mental health services
  • Interactive action planning for applying these skills to CSUSB and the community

In addition, breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants.

This is the second training session held on campus; the first took place in August, prior to the start of the fall semester.
