Free Mental Health Crisis Intervention Training from SUNY
The isolation, stress, uncertainty, and anxiety of the pandemic have led to alarming rises in mental health struggles among young adults, with 1 in 4 people aged 18-24 contemplating suicide in 2020 as compared to 1 in 10 in 2018.
This is a tragic statistic that SUNY is taking seriously and working to address. It is more critical than ever to provide mental health supports to our students—and you can be part of the solution. SUNY is offering free QPR mental health crisis intervention training, which will teach you three simple steps for responding when someone mentions suicidal thoughts or is struggling with suicidal ideation: Question, Persuade, Refer.
The training takes less than an hour and could help save a life.
How to sign up:

- Create your free training account using your @suny.edu email address.
- Follow the instructions to complete the training.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from this pandemic, it’s that we’re stronger when we all look out for each other. Please consider enrolling in a training session today to build a more supportive, healthier SUNY community.
