Beat Stress for Academic Success Workshop: This 50-minute workshop focuses on the top three factors that disrupted academic performance in 2014: stress, anxiety, and sleep difficulties. A social worker from the Weigel Wellness Center will help participants learn healthy ways to predict and cope with stressful times in the academic year, mental and behavioral ways to reduce anxiety, and small ways to change one’s habits and environment to improve sleep.

QPR Gatekeeper Training: “QPR" stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone for help. We would like Buffalo State to be community of UPstanders as opposed to bystanders. It is a myth that asking if a vulnerable person is considering suicide gives that person the idea. Instead, it lowers anxiety, opens up communication and lowers risk of an impulsive act. The goal is not to be a counselor, but to listen and then know where to refer the struggling person for professional help. Help is always available 24 hours by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255). We can create a safety net for our community by listening non-judgmentally, instilling hope, and giving a referral for help. If you would like to attend the QPR session, please RSVP at 878-4436. See schedule below.
