Mental Health Event: Suicide Prevention Training for Families and Caregivers
QPR - Question, Persuade, Refer
Tuesday, January 28, 6 - 7:30p FLYER
Ralston Valley High School, 13355 W. 80th Ave., Arvada
**Given the high level of media interest in this subject, we want to share the event with the media only. This event is meant for families in these two articulation areas and is not meant to be advertised as open to the public. Note, future QPR events are being planned for other articulation areas.
Having recently expanded our mental health support efforts (thanks to the voters for passing 5A in Nov 2018), Jeffco Public Schools is conducting suicide prevention training for families and caregivers. An extremely successful event was held in late 2019 in another area, and now we offer a second event for the Ralston Valley/Arvada West articulation area families. Read more about our suicide prevention programming here and here . If you are interested in attending this event, email Cameron Bell (link in header) to arrange attendance.
