Suicide Awareness & Prevention Training

At Northeast Iowa Behavioral Health, we have been offering a program called QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer), which has been shown to reduce the incidence of suicide in communities where the program is implemented.  We are offering six opportunities to attend this one-hour presentation, which will train the attendees in QPR, allowing them to become familiar with signs of suicide intent, and to intervene in an effective way.
The initial presentations will be held at Northeast Iowa Behavioral Health, 905 Montgomery St, in Decorah. Dates and times for this training are below:
Monday, June 1st 4:00 pm
Thursday, June 4th 7:00 pm
Monday, June 8th 7:00 pm
Thursday, June 11th 4:00 pm
Monday, June 15th 4:00 pm
Thursday, Jun 18th 7:00 pm
The presentation is free of charge, and it will be followed by discussion.  Space in each presentation is limited, so please register at 563-382-3649.
