Tips trainings for businesses scheduled for January 19 and 28.
Suicide Prevention: Sub 1 health educator and QPR instructor Jen Wilkinson trained 90 students to be QPR Gatekeepers in the past month. Do you have a 10th grader in your family? Ask them about QPR and what they learned. Melinda Bobo trained all new SAFV volunteers to be Gatekeepers. 13 community members from the schools, Sheriff’s Office, churches, and business were trained in Mental Health First Aid. That totals 110 new Sublette comunity members added to the community safety net for suicide prevention.
Opiates and Other Drugs: Planning for Marbleton drug take back lunch; promoting “How Marijuana affects the Adolescent Brain” presentation for February 9 with Dr. Libby Stuyt; and collaborating with Stan Cannon, County Attorney’s Office to promote education on addiction and the brain.
Full coalition lunch on Thursday: Each task force will look back on 2020 and report on what we did and how did it work? What might be a new or better way to do this specific task? What can we do “next semester?”
