  • Psychological First Aid Training

    Nebraska Psychological First Aid Training (PFA) in North Platte, NE

     

    The purpose of the Nebraska psychological first aid program is to equip natural helpers to provide psychological support to survivors of critical events (e.g. disasters, conflicts, accidents, etc.). It is segmented into seven modules, each addressing critical skills that can make an immediate and lasting impact on a person’s psychological health following a crisis: 1) Psychological Support; 2) Stress and Coping; 3) Supportive Communication; 4) Promoting Community Self-Help; 5) Populations with Functional Needs; 6) Helping the Helper; and 7) De-escalation.

     

    The PFA acknowledges the seriousness of the experience of danger and the increased feelings of vulnerability that often follow the immediate aftermath of a traumatic event, crisis, or natural disaster. Trained facilitators will be able to provide PFA Training in their communities to meet the needs of local citizens.

  • Mental Health First Aid Training

    Check below for Youth and Adult Mental Health First Aid Training

    • Can identify multiple types of professional and self-help resources for individuals with a mental illness or addiction.

    • Increase their confidence in and likelihood to help an individual in distress.

    • Show increased mental wellness themselves.

     

    Studies also show that the program reduces the social distance created by negative attitudes and perceptions of individuals with mental illnesses.

  • QPR For Suicide Prevention

    Question, Persuade, & Refer

    QPR is not intended to be a form of counseling or treatment.

    QPR is intended to offer hope through positive action.

    QPR is intended to teach those who are in a position to recognize the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of people in trouble to ACT vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

     

    Suicide Prevention Gatekeepers

     

    A gatekeeper is anyone trained to recognize a suicide crisis and, because of their training, knows how and where to find help.

     

    Why QPR for Suicide Prevention Gatekeepers?

     

    QPR gatekeeper training only takes 1.5- 2hours and is taught in a format that is clear and concise. Gatekeepers are given information that is easy to understand and reinforced by a QPR booklet and card complete with warning signs, methods to encourage a person to get help and a list of resources available in your community.

     

     

    Who Teaches QPR Gatekeepers?

     

    QPR was created and developed by Paul Quinnett, Ph.D. of Spokane, Washington.  Dr. Quinnett began a QPR Instructor Certification Program to allow qualified candidates to teach QPR and increase the number of gatekeepers trained to act in a bold and positive manner to prevent a suicide and save a life.
