Text: Agricultural Community QPR for Farmers and Farm Families: Over the last decade, farmers and farm families have experienced increasing pressures resulting in high levels of stress, mental health issues and suicide.

Last updated on November 15th, 2022 at 12:00 pm

What is QPR? QPR training teaches laypeople and professionals to recognize and respond to mental health crises using the approach of Question, Persuade and Refer.

To attend this training participants must be 18 years of age or older.

In this 1.5-hour QPR training, we will provide:
– Information on the unique challenges farmers face that can lead to stress, depression, and suicide.
– Examples implementing each QPR component with someone at risk for suicide.
– Information on how to help someone at risk of suicide.

Registration spots are limited, so please only register if you can attend the event. No recording of this training will be available. Interested in hosting a QPR training session for your organization? Contact Olivia Bury (obury@agrisafe.org) for more information!

AgriSafe would like to thank the Lumberton FFA Chapter from North Carolina for sponsoring this QPR training.
