Welcome to Prevention Management
Organization Of Wyoming, Big Horn County
Our Mission & Vision:PMO’s mission is clear: “Through collaborations and partnerships, the Prevention Management Organization of Wyoming is dedicated to strengthening the prevention efforts around alcohol,
tobacco, other drugs, and suicide.”
When PMO succeeds in achieving mission, its vision is a healthier Wyoming, free of suicide and the
abuses of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
Impact:PMO is established to prevent abuse, disease, injury, and deaths related to tobacco, alcohol, drugs,and suicide. PMO’s services are designed to create a socially, economically, and physically healthierWyoming. At a community level, impact is recognized by fewer tragic deaths, fewer crimes and
accidents, decreased student and workforce absenteeism, and decreased medical costs. At a statewide
population basis, impact is measured over time by statistically significant changes in public health
indexes and prevalence data.
Goals:While there are a number of outcomes, goals, objectives, and activities defined in grants and contracts, organizationally PMO has a few overreaching, strategic goals. When achieved, these goals can be considered as organizational “wins” — similar to research/development, financial, and production benchmarks that reflect corporate success in the private sector. Strategic goals are a touchstone for programmatic and operational decisions, i.e. “do these help us achieve identified organizational goals”?

What is QPR?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour”

It begins with you…
Most people thinking about suicide signal and share their pain – they offer us opportunities to respond.
Suicide intervention training can help all of us see, hear and respond to these invitations. It can also increase our confidence to ask about suicide when someone’s safety may be in the balance.
If someone is at risk, suicide first aid prepares us to work with them to increase their immediate safety and get further help.
