 The reports are sent to admin and/or counselors either by phone or email depending on the severity. They also are able to alert the LEC in heightened situations such as suicide, safety, etc.   follow up questions. Reports are monitored 24/7. They transcribe the tips as they come in and follow up immediately in emergency situations. It is important to note they also allow  and   ASIST Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is an intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize and review risk, and intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
