QPR suicide prevention class in Shoreview

QPR is a free, one-hour presentation sponsored by NAMI Minnesota, a part of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, that covers the three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide: Question, Persuade and Refer. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught gatekeeper training program in the United States, and more than one million adults have been trained in classroom settings in more than 48 states. The QPR class will be offered in Shoreview on Monday, Sept. 17, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Shoreview Library, 4560 Victoria St. N. in Shoreview. For information or to register, contact Heather at 651-645-2948 ext. 114 or hsharkey@namimn.org, or see “classes” at www.namimn.org.


Health care documentary screening

The Roseville Area Advocates for Minnesota Health Plan will host a viewing of “Big Pharma: Market Failure” on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 6:30 p.m. at the Autumn Grove Park Building in Roseville. The documentary explores the problem of extreme drug prices in the U.S. and how drug costs impact the public, businesses, and the overall U.S. economy.

If you think it’s time for a health care system that covers everyone from cradle to grave, while reducing costs through a publicly-financed, privately delivered system, come, and bring a friend. Those who just want to learn more are welcome as well. Contact Valerie Swenson at 651-487-6473 for more information. The park is located at 1395 Lydia Ave.
