Suicide Prevention Program is Sept. 27 in Sibley
Program offered by ISU Extension.
SIBLEY, Iowa — Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host “Question. Persuade. Refer” (QPR) from noon to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 27, at the Osceola Regional Health Wellness Center Multipurpose Room in Sibley. The program is free to attend, and all are welcome.
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.
The program is open to everyone — health care workers, teachers, faith leaders, business and industry members, farmers, parents and anyone who wants to equip themselves with skills and resources to question, persuade and refer someone in a mental health crisis to help.
A complimentary lunch will be provided to all registered participants. To register or for more information, contact Sandy at the Iowa State University Extension, Osceola County office at (712) 754-3648, email email@example.com or register online at https://go.iastate.edu/YD9KQA .
