MAY 2022 in PREVENTION

Happy Spring to everyone,

A big shout out and thank you to the 12 people from Sublette schools, churches, businesses, and youth who attended the 2 day ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills training) class this past weekend in Pinedale.

Our community safety net to protect against suicide just got wider and stronger. Please share our social media posts thanking these Sublette individuals.

Tuesday May 10 12 - 1 PM: Opiates, Marijuana, and Other Drugs Task Force

The task force will look at 2021 arrest data from the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police; learn about Delta - 8, a hemp derived THC product now legal and sold in gas stations in Wyoming; evaluate our current 90 day social media campaign to educate parents about high concentrate THC products that are packaged and marketed to kids. The goal of this 90 day campaign is to stay informed on the changing face of THC and the risks it presents to youth.
