|A Fort McCoy Applied Suicide Intervention Skills
Training (ASIST) session is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 to 4:30 p.m. Monday,

Anyone in the Fort McCoy work force can attend the training. However, the class size will be limited, so interested personnel are encouraged to register in advance. Civilian attire will be the dress policy for participants, and they will be expected to attend the two full days of training.

The training presents a model for effective suicide intervention and also generates information about available resources in the local community.
