The Rotary Club of Sherwood and Washington County Public Health are co-sponsoring a free two-day suicide prevention class called ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) at the Sherwood Senior Center, 21907 S.W. Sherwood Boulevard, on Thursday and Friday, May 11 and 12, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days.
This training is for anyone 18 years of age or older. Space is limited, and early registration is encouraged.
ASIST is a suicide prevention training designed for family members, educators, first responders, social workers, caregivers, faith community members and others interested in helping someone in need.
Participants will learn the warning signs for suicide as well as how to skillfully intervene to help someone in crisis.
This class is offered as part of the Get Trained to Help – Mental Health Matters for All initiative, a tri-county effort to train people in first aid skills for suicide prevention and mental health emergencies.
