According to Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, suicides could sky-rocket this year due to the social isolation and economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of this and due to the great demand for the on-line Question.Persuade.Refer. (QPR) suicide prevention training, an additional four programs have been added in May. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.

Prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm – especially when misused.  That misuse can include not understanding your medication needs, leaving prescriptions where others can access them, and intentional abuse.

“Generation Rx” seminars will be held this winter and spring in Allamakee, Winneshiek and Howard counties. The seminars, aimed at preventing prescription medication misuse, are presented by volunteers with Northeast Iowa Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (NEI RSVP) and Helping Services for Youth & Families. 

According to Deana Hageman, Director of NEI RSVP, “Whether prescription misuse is intentional or not, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed. We hope these presentations will alert people to potential dangers of misusing prescription medications and promote safe medication practices.”

The seminars, which are geared to an adult audience, will provide attendees with information about safe storage of medications, proper disposal of unused medications and tips for taking your medications as prescribed.    

Northeast Iowa Generation Rx Seminars scheduled to date:

Monday, February 3, 2:00-3:00 pm at Arlin Falck Assisted Living, Barthell Eastern Star, Decorah

Monday, February 24, 6:00-7:00 pm at Fort Atkinson Community Center, Fort Atkinson

Tuesday, February 25, 6:30-7:30 pm at Decorah Public Library, Decorah

Tuesday, March 10, 11:00-11:45 am at Decorah Senior Center, Decorah

Wednesday, March 18, 9:30-10:30 am at Viking State Bank, Decorah

Sunday, March 29, 9:40-10:40 am at Decorah Lutheran Church

Monday, April 6, 1:30-2:30 pm at Cresco Public Library, Cresco

Thursday, May 28, 5:30-6:30 pm at Robey Memorial Library, Waukon

Visit www.decorah.lib.ia.us/RSVP for more information about the seminars and links to Generation Rx resources.
