VIRTUAL Suicide Prevention Training – QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer.) for Youth (13+) and their families.

  • September 21, 2020
    7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Note: this session is sponsored by Mount Hebron PTSA and is geared toward youth suicide prevention and intended for youth ages 13 & up, their families or anyone who works with youth.

 

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness month.

While we aim to prevent suicide everyday, we will be placing additional focus on sharing resources, stories, education in order to shed light on a highly stigmatized

topic. This month will be used to support those impacted by suicide, raise awareness to prevent suicide and educate the community on the resources available. QPR is one of Grassroots’ most popular trainings and it will be offered several times throughout suicide awareness month.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer — the 3 simple steps 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.

KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:

  • How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who could be suicidal
  • How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
  • The common causes of suicidal behavior
  • The warning signs of suicide
  • How to get help for someone in crisis
