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 July 21-22, 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. There is no cost to participate, and lunch and refreshment will be provided. Participants must commit to full attendance on both days.
