QPR Suicide Prevention Program available online

In response to so much stress and uncertainty, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will be offering seven online “Question. Persuade. Refer.” programs said David Brown, behavioral health specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. QPR is a suicide prevention program that teaches participants three steps to help save a life from suicide.
“Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help,” Brown explained.  Each on-line program will last for one hour. Those dates and times are as follows:
· Tuesday, April 28 at 12 p.m.– sold out  · Wednesday, April 29 at 10 a.msold out . · Tuesday, May 5 at 12 p.m. · Wednesday, May 6 at 10 a.m.
