ELEVATE Series for Couples; please note, individuals can attend without their spouse.  We do not want to exclude anyone.  This is a series program offered during the lunchtime 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm, for seven weeks.  Registration is not required to attend this series.  It is a Connect format and links to information and handouts will be provided during the workshop.  Individuals are encouraged to sign in 10 minutes prior to 12:30 to be in the room and ready to begin.  
There is a QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer Suicide Prevention) Series for our Agricultural Community you may want to share.  There are many opportunities to attend in the coming weeks.  It is NOT a series, there are just several opportunities to attend. We have identified it as a workshop for the Agricultural Community as the scenarios and discussion are farmer/ag based.  It is free and there is a certificate of completion.  Registration is required because we have to obtain an email to send participants digital copies of things we would typically give them physically and provide them with their certificate.  There is also a class limit for facilitation purposes so if one is full, encourage individuals to try and sign up for another.  This might be a great opportunity of Professional Development for extension and outreach members. (other audiences will be added later)
