A two-day workshop in Sheridan called Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, known by the acronym ASIST, is coming to Sheridan Sept. 14 and 15.
Terresa Humphries-Wadsworth, special programs coordinator with the Yellowstone Behavioral Health Center, will be teaching the class.
The class is accredited to count toward continuing education and training hours for emergency responders, police officers, teachers, mental health workers, and others in relevant occupations. However, the class is open to the public, because chances are that most Wyomingites will be affected by suicide at some point.
Again, the class is Saturday and Sunday, the 14th and 15th of September. The class is free, thanks to grant assistance from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, but class size is limited. The registration deadline is the 31st of next month. To register, contact Vanessa Hastings at 672-8958.
