39 People in Winn Parish Are Now ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) Certified

Congratulations to 39 people who dedicated 2 days of their time to learn a life-long, life-saving skill!

We are so proud of Winn Parish School System for coming together to become pro-active against suicide.

On October 5-6, 2021, 34 members of WPSB (faculty of Atlanta HS, Calvin HS, Dodson HS, VAMC, Winnfield Elementary, Winnfield Middle School, Winnfield Senior High, Winnfield School Board, and 1 student), and 5 other participants: including CASA, LSU AgCenter, parent, State-Trooper, and U.S. Forest Service became ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) certified.

Our sponsors deserve a huge thank you, because without them, this workshop would not have been possible: Huey P. Long CLTCC Winnfield (facility); CLHSD (materials and trainer fees), Sheriff C. L. Jordan of Winn Parish (lunches), First Baptist Church of Winnfield (snacks and refreshments), VA (trainer), and all the sponsors listed on the banner below. #sucidesafercommunities #ASIST #sucideprevention #SaveCenla
