Suicide Prevention tailored to Farming Communities

Share this -

NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Minnesota and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) are partnering to provide suicide prevention classes tailored to farming communities. Classes are open to everyone and start this Thursday.

Can’t make it this Thursday? This class will be presented several more times in the coming weeks, and registration links are available below.

The aim is to change the public perception in agricultural communities and better equip the community to identify and help people who may be having thoughts of suicide.

The classes are a one hour suicide prevention program called QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) to help individuals learn the three steps anyone can take to help prevent a suicide.
