The Counseling Center is offering suicide prevention training for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, September 28 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. in the Regis Room.
The training will discuss the steps one can take to help prevent suicide: Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR). Question the person about suicide; persuade the person to get help; and refer the person for help. QPR, also known as the “CPR for suicide prevention,” is designed to increase one’s ability to recognize suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and to refer the person who is at risk to a professional resource.

Those who have participated in this workshop previously are encouraged to take it again to refresh their skills. To register, please email Ivy Wang, outreach coordinator, Counseling Center at email@example.com or call the Counseling Center at Ext. 2620 to reserve a seat. Space is limited.
