Crisis Training for Ag Professionals

 

September 16, 2020



An upcoming online training for agricultural professionals will teach individuals how to recognize and respond to potential signs of crisis and suicidal behavior.

Farming and ranching can be stressful in the best of times. Financial worries, unpredictable weather, unpredictable commodity prices, plant pests, livestock diseases and isolation all contribute to a producer’s anxiety. And now Nebraska’s rural communities and families are coping with the unpredictability and imposed isolation produced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nebraska Extension and the Panhandle Public Health District will be offering an online “Question. Persuade. Refer.” training. QPR is a suicide prevention program that teaches participants three steps to help save a life from suicide.

This 90-minute training will be held online, via Zoom, on Thursday Sept. 24, 2020, at 10 a.m. MT. There is no cost to attend the training, but registration is required.To register, go to https://go.unl.edu/panqpr.
