QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) / Ask, Listen, Get Help Expand This training is meant to empower educators to act as a bridge to help for a student who may be struggling. It is not intended to be clinical, but rather, it is meant to offer a suicide prevention tool anyone can use to help a student who may be thinking about suicide by offering three simple steps – Question, Persuade, Refer / Ask, Listen, Get Help. This interactive training covers suicide statistics, risk factors & warnings signs of a young person in crisis, and strategies & resources to support a young person dealing with mental health challenges.

Building Resilience in the Shadow of Covid-19 Expand

This workshop offers educators the tools to help build resiliency within the schools for both teachers and students during the ongoing COVID 19 situation. 

The training will cover: 

  • Research findings on the mental health impact of challenging experiences and trauma, especially in young people;
  • How these findings might predict the mental health impact of Covid-19;
  • How the trauma of school closures, isolation, loss of loved ones and experiences, and continued uncertainty has led to increased the anxiety in both students and teachers; 
  • Common signs of anxiety, depression, and trauma in the classroom;
  • What it means to be resilient; 
  • How to create a culture that fosters resilience for students and school staff;
  • Strategies to build hope and ” bounce back” skills. To watch an example of this webinar, check out this recording! 
     
The Value of a Trusted Adult Expand

This presentation educates those viewed by youth as role models (coaches, teachers, etc) on how to support young adults. Participants learn how to engage with youth, learn the qualities/attributes of a trusted adult, identify the responsibilities, boundaries, limitations of being a trusted adult, and recognize a student’s autonomy, while building a viable support system  around them.

Peer Mentor Presentations: Quarantine Cares Stories Expand

To meet the changing needs of the communities The NAN Project serves, our Peer Mentors have crafted “Quarantine Cares Stories” to share with students and virtual learners.  These stories, each 3-5 minutes long, provide a Peer Mentor’s perspective on maintaining their mental health during a pandemic. These presentations include background information on the young adults’ struggles before COVID 19, what those challenges look like during periods of physical isolation, and ideas for managing stress and finding connection, with a hopeful focus on the strategies and supports that are still available, even now.
