The Wellness Center provides the following trainings for free.
Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)
This user-friendly online training is intended to equip all of us—administrators, faculty, staff and students—with the skills needed to identify and respond to a mental health crisis, much in the way that CPR training is designed to prepare people to respond to a cardiac event. QPR training is brief; it takes about an hour to complete the course.
Participants learn how to identify and safely engage with someone who may be having a mental health crisis, in order to direct them to assistance. The training is appropriate for a range of settings and relationships—at work, across campus, or at home, and in both personal and professional settings. The training does not require any clinical expertise, just a willingness to listen, care, and help. You can participate in Question, Persuade, Refer training by accessing http://www.qprtraining.com/setup.php and using the organizational code SUNY.
Red Watch Band
The mission of the Red Watch Band is to provide students of the college community with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion and respect.
Safe Zone trainings are opportunities to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender and sexuality, and examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege.
In as little as an hour, you can learn techniques to save the life of a loved-one, friend, co-worker, neighbor ... anyone ... who is experiencing an overdose caused by prescription narcotics or heroin.
