About This Event
Working with youth who may be considering suicide can be difficult. To help, it is important to recognize the warning signs of suicidal intentions. Information and education can empower all people, regardless of background, to make a difference in the life of someone they know.
Attend this training to become certified in the QPR – Question, Persuade, Refer – suicide prevention model. Like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. This training will help you:
- recognize the warning signs of someone at risk for suicide;
- demonstrate increased knowledge of intervention skills; and
- become familiar with referral services and how to refer someone.
