Be a Life Saver: College Offers Free Suicide Prevention Workshop April 16

March 27, 2014

According to the Mental Wellness Campaign for Anoka County (MWCAC) more than 565 suicides occurred in Anoka County over the past 10 years. Nationally, suicide is the third leading cause of death among 15 – 24 year olds.

Suicide is 100% preventable and anyone can learn how to help.  

The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Counseling and Student Activities Departments are sponsoring a free public event to help address this national crisis and help concerned people get involved by becoming gatekeepers.

QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention
Wednesday, April 16, 2014
11 a.m. to noon or 1 to 2 p.m.
Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room

Presenters include: Davin Maijala, PsyD, Licensed Psychologist, and Nikki Jagodzinski, MS, Suicide Prevention Coordinator, both from St. Cloud State University.

Community members are encouraged to attend.

In this one hour workshop, participants can learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and learn skills to intervene to help a friend. Participants will walk away from this training with the skills to help someone who is depressed, discouraged and needing help.
