An Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) Workshop will be offered next month in Buffalo, and those wishing to participate need to enroll by Friday, February 5th.
The workshop, provided by the Wyoming Department of Health, will be staged at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Buffalo, and will teach how to recognize an at-risk individual, make a plan to help, and identify resources available to help, among other skills.
The workshop has limited enrollment, and is normally $275 to attend the two-day training, but enrollment costs have been covered with prevention grant funding through the Department of Health.
Trainers for the workshop are provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Wyoming Chapter.
The workshop will be presented on Wednesday, February 24th and Thursday, February 25th at St. Luke’s Church.
Registration forms are available from Bill Hawley, Community Prevention Specialist with the Johnson County Prevention Council at (307) 425-6552, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
