Suicide Prevention Training
Posted September 30, 2016
Faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend Question,
Persuade, Refer (QPR) suicide prevention trainings on Oct. 17 and
Nov. 15. At these two-hour trainings, participants can become QPR
certified. Trainees will learn how to recognize someone at risk for
suicide, what to do and say in this situation, and where and how to
refer someone who is potentially depressed or suicidal.
There are three upcoming QPR trainings—one for faculty and staff
and two for students. The training for faculty and staff will be
the traditional QPR course but will incorporate some interactive
elements from the new Campus Connect training module, and lunch
will be provided. Trainings for students will be a hybrid of the
traditional course and the Campus Connect training module.
Undergraduate, graduate, and professional students are all welcome
to participate in the training. Dinner will be provided.
Trainings will take place at the following dates and times:
· Monday, Oct. 17 at 12-2 p.m. — faculty and staff training
(sponsored by Public Partnership & Outreach)
· Monday, Oct. 17 at 5-7 p.m. — student training (sponsored
by Biomedical Sciences)
· Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 5-7pm — student training (sponsored
by the Office of Graduate Studies)
Registration for these sessions will be sent through the VETMED
Trainings will take place in the Veterinary & Biomedical
Education Complex. Jenny Kenley, a licensed professional counselor
with the Student Counseling Service will lead the trainings. She
will tailor this training to be applicable to the veterinary
QPR trainings are a campus-wide effort and are made possible by
the Student Counseling Services, the College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences’ Office of Inclusion and Diversity,
Biomedical Sciences, the Office of Graduate Studies, and the Public
Partnership & Outreach.
