Please Note: The ASIST training teaches a specific suicide prevention intervention. Some of the content of the curriculum may trigger troubling feelings and thoughts. The class is not a form of counseling, therapy or support group. If you are a suicide attempt survivor or have experienced a loss by suicide, we suggest delaying taking the ASIST class for at least a year. If you are currently experiencing thoughts of suicide, please contact Clackamas County Crisis Line at 503 655-8585 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255; they are both available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. If you have questions about whether this class is a good fit for you at the present time, please call Kathy Turner, Coordinator at 503 742-5962. Thank you.
Please Note: The Public Safety Training Center includes a shooting range and you can hear practice shooting in various parts of the facility. If this will impact you or your ability to have a class here, please cancel your registration and sign up for a class at another facility. Thank you.
