QPR Training for suicide prevention will be offered free of charge to the public. QPR stands for
Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
The 90-minute virtual training will be held on Wednesday, June 9th from Noon – 1:30 pm. and
Thursday, June 24th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Participants can choose the day that works best for them.
Participants who attend the free training will learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer (QPR) someone to help. Much like CPR or the Heimlich Maneuver, the fundamentals of QPR are easily learned, and the application could save a life.
