AHM Offers Free Narcan & QPR Training
AHM Youth and Family Services is offering a free, virtual training on how to administer Narcan, which is the substance used to reverse an opioid overdose. Approximately 27,000 lives have been saved due to Narcan administration, in the United States. This training covers how to use it properly; each attendee will also be provided a free Narcan kit. The second part of this training is on QPR, which stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. This is a suicide prevention strategy, in which a trained person is taught to notice signs of a mental health crisis, and respond. The training is on zoom, March 25th, 6:30- 8:00 pm. To register for this free training, email Brendan at Brendang@ahmyouth.org.
