Questions, Persuade, Refer: A 2 hour training by our local instructor, Alissa Kuka, that prepares gatekeepers to recognize the signs of suicide, ask the right questions and seek help.
What we do:
In 2020 the coalition received a grant to certify our two local instructors: one for QPR & one for MHFA. With these trainers, we are continually offering low cost training to Valley County and surrounding areas that are interested.
We routinely host open community trainings and will work with organizations to schedule staff-wide and open trainings based on your needs.
