Hickory – At any given time, 1 in 17 adults and 1 in 6 youth are considering suicide.  Suicide reaches into people’s lives in multiple ways.  The goal of CAST (Coping and Support Training)  is to begin working in the larger community beyond the church to create a network of support for the desperate. This community-oriented program is designed to increase awareness of the dangers of suicide and discuss the steps that can be taken to reduce risks.
