QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer)

This evidence-based training course teaches individuals how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, offer hope to people in crisis, and get help to save a life. It is suitable for people with little to no mental health background as well as those who wish to increase their comfort on the subject. Participants receive a certificate.

The program is facilitated by Molly Colley. She is the Northeast Regional Director for the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, TSPN. Molly is a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, both from East Tennessee State University. Prior to working with TSPN, Molly was a therapist with Frontier Health.

Building Strong Brains: Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

This training focuses on understanding brain architecture, learning about serve and return interactions, and the long-term impact of trauma and toxic stress on individuals’ physical and mental health.

We know traumatized children can make for traumatized adults. Let’s brainstorm how can Northeast State help increase resiliency in students with high ACE scores.

Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)

C-SSRS is a suicide risk assessment which uses a series of simple, plain-language questions that anyone can ask.

The answers help users identify whether someone is at risk for suicide, assess the severity and immediacy of that risk, and gauge the level of support that the person needs. We want to evaluate the C-SSRS as an alternate option to QPR training for the college.

Bring your own lunch. Drinks and Dessert will be provided.

Free event to Faculty, staff and students.  Seating is limited for this event.
