September is Suicide Prevention Month. Here is a list of Suicide Prevention Trainings (QPR) in our area. PLEASE consider attending one of these 1 hour training sessions. You could save a life! All sessions are FREE and open to the public.
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.
