Save Cenla recently completed its 2-day ASIST workshop at CLTCC. 27 participants completed the training and were ASIST certified by the end of day two.
Participants were from a vast array of backgrounds and organizations including Beacon Intensive Outpatient of Alexandria, 5 Dodson High School students, Dogwood Academy parent and High School student, Monterey High School teacher, mother, 2 from Mt. Grace Teen Challenge, Natchitoches Parish School Board, 3 from Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Office, retired, self-employed law enforcement officer, 4 Winnfield High School students, 2 from Winn Detention Center, and 3 from the Winnfield Police Department. These organizations now have people who know how to help someone who may be thinking of suicide.
Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to learn this skill. Also, thank you, Dean Jeff Johnson of Huey P. Long CLTCC, Winnfield, Sheriff Jordan of Winn parish, CLHSD, and all of our sponsors listed on the banner below, for helping us create suicide-safer communities.
