Ask a Question, Save a Life

September 14, 2023 at 6:15 pm - 7:45 pm

  • This event has passed.

Say YES to saving the life of a friend, colleague, family member, or neighbor. Everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Learn three simple steps to help save a life from suicide. When you take the QPR suicide prevention training, you learn the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Sign up and join this impactful class. Minimum of 5 participants required for program to proceed.

Many people think that our formal support networks such as physicians, pastors, police officers, and therapists are those that will help us in a mental health crisis, and that’s true. However, it’s those in our most intimate inner circles who are going to be the first to recognize our distress. The more people who are trained in recognizing signs and symptoms of mental illness and know what resources are available, the sooner we can get people the help that they need. Question. Persuade. Refer. (Q.P.R). works just like CPR; the average person doesn’t have to know how to treat the illness, they need to recognize that something is wrong and help someone until professional help is available. Registration opens on August 21.
