QPR Brown Bag

|

On November 5, UST’s Counseling and Psychological Services office will hold two brown bag sessions for faculty on suicide prevention using the QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) strategy. QPR is a takeoff on CPR and is one of the only empirically validated treatments for suicide prevention in the country. The brown bag will help faculty recognize when a student is at risk for suicide and increase:

  • knowledge of intervention skills
  • knowledge of referral resources and how to refer someone to help
  • comfort with intervening

All faculty are invited to attend. Department chairs are encouraged to send at least one department representative to bring back information from the brown bag. 

Date: Tuesday, November 5

St. Paul Campus: Noon-1 pm in Murray Herrick Center, room 205 (Please feel free to bring your lunch to this session.)

Minneapolis Campus: 3-4 pm in Opus Hall, room 201

Please R.S.V.P. online at: http://stthomasaa.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_7NBO9lGyhh8xXeZ


By attending one of the brown bag sessions you will be better prepared to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis know what to do if you encounter a situation with a student, just like people learn CPR to deal with a physical emergency.
