Suicide prevention workshop scheduled for Thursday
The Spotsylvania County school division is holding a suicide prevention and awareness workshop Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the administration building, 8020 River Stone Drive in the Massaponax area.
The workshop is titled, “How to Help Others When Help is Needed the Most,” and is hosted by the division’s Counseling Services Department, schools spokeswoman Rene Daniels said.
Linda Binion, supervisor of guidance and testing, will lead the workshop, which is open to the public. People will learn about warning signs that someone might be in need of help and what to do if you observe them.
The workshop will be held in the School Board meeting room.
