RECEIVE SUICIDE INTERVENTION SKILLS TRAINING

Rappahannock Area Community Services Board will offer a two-day workshop, Nov. 21–22, to give participants the skills and knowledge needed to help prevent suicide.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills training will help participants recognize the warning signs of suicide, reach out effectively and intervene in a timely manner, according to a press release from RACSB.

Studies show that the ASIST training 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; participants must commit to attending both days of training.

More information is available by contacting Michelle Wagaman at 540/374-3337 or mwagaman@rappahannockareacsb.org. To register, go online to bit.ly/ASISTregistration.
