The National Center for Suicide Survivors partners with individuals approximately 15 years and older who have attempted suicide with the goal of preventing future suicide attempts. Our Intensive Suicide Survivor Treatment (ISST)
stems from the Swiss-based Attempted Suicide Short Intervention Program (ASSIP), which decreased suicide re-attempts by 80% shown in a randomized controlled study.
To date, no protocol offers more hope!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our program consists of five 90-minute intensive virtual or in-person sessions with 24 months of continued support through six care letters. To understand how each session is structured hover over the following tiles. (If viewing this website on a tablet, all details may not display. Please use a phone or computer. )
NEED MORE SUPPORT
The National Center for Suicide Survivors realizes that suicide affects individuals, families, and communities. We strongly believe in providing guidance to those supporting suicide survivors. As part of ISST, Parents and Supports will receive training to ensure the best outcome for our suicide survivors. The video training is designed to provide parents, caregivers, family, and friends with the relevant tools they need to help their loved ones.
