BUFFALO STATE CARES: A SUICIDE PREVENTION INITIATIVE

The Counseling Center and the Buffalo State Cares Outreach Worker are now offering QPR training.  QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone for help.    See schedule below.
