Community Services Board offers suicide prevention training
From the Rappahannock Area Community Services Board:
Suicide is preventable, but intervening can seem scary. A two-day training aims to give participants the skills and knowledge to save lives.
Rappahannock Area Community Services Board will offer Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training on March 5-6, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The workshop will help participants learn to recognize the warning signs of suicide, to reach out effectively, and to intervene in a timely manner.
Studies show that ASIST saved more than 15,000 lives in 2016, and the impacts continue to rise as more people receive the training.
The course will be offered at RACSB at River Club, 10825 Tidewater Trail in Spotsylvania County. The $30 cost includes lunch for both days of the training. Participants must commit to full attendance on both days.
For details, contact Prevention Services Coordinator Michelle Wagaman at 540/374-3337 or [email protected]. To register, go online to bit.ly/ASISTregistration.
