About This Event

Suicide has been the second-leading cause of death for Indiana youth between the ages of 15 and 24 since 2009. Working with youth who may be considering suicide can be difficult. In order to help, it is important to recognize the warning signs or signals of suicidal intentions. Information and education can empower all people, regardless of background, to make a positive 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 attendees:

  • learn the facts about suicide;
  • identify warning signs of someone in crisis; and
  • know how to intervene.

Participants will receive a QPR training certificate.
