Ask a Question, Save a Life: Tactics for Suicide Prevention: 

SMCS is pleased to host the next session in the ON TRACK education series: QPR for Suicide Prevention – Ask A Question, Save A Life.

The presentation will take place on Tuesday, February 20, at 6:30 p.m. in the Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center. Counseling professionals from the SMCS staff will share with attendees how they can help someone who may be considering suicide by using the three QPR life-saving skills-Question, Persuade and Refer.

Each addressing appropriate tactics for students of different ages, the presenters are: Nada Newcomb, MS (elementary school counselor); Mary Lou Kalaus, MSE (middle school counselor) and Julie Castagna, MS and Ralph Norton, MSE (both high school counselors).

This event is suggested for educators, parents, coaches and other adults who are concerned about the epidemic of youth suicide in our nation and who care about the wellbeing of students.

The ON TRACK series of evening seminars is hosted in the black box theater at the Jane Bergstrom Fine Arts Education Center located at St. Mary Catholic High School in partnership with community resources and experts, at no cost to the community.

To attend any of these seminars, interested participants should email Michelle Dejno to reserve a spot.

Walk-ins welcome!
