Trainings

 
 
 
In March, as the community shifted to shelter-in-place, the Suicide Prevention Program issued online Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training codes for more than 225 school staff and community members. We want to recognize school districts and organizations for utilizing this time as an opportunity to train staff and support suicide prevention skills building.

  
Reminder: Our Kognito school-based partnership districts continue to have access to their modules. With a large number of school personnel working from home, Kognito simulations remain active and available for districts and their after-school program staff.
For technical assistance, please connect with Joe Diaz, joseph.diaz@kognito.com.
