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 listserv.

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 medical field.

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.
