The Counseling Center is offering suicide prevention training for students, faculty and staff. QPR, the “CPR for suicide prevention,” will be offered September 13 at 3:00 p.m. in Old Main 221.
QPR stands for Question the person about suicide, Persuade the person to get help and Refer the person for help. QPR 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 previously participated in this workshop are encouraged to take it again to refresh their skills.
Email Jillian Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Counseling Center at Ext. 2620 to reserve a seat. Space is limited. To learn more about QPR, along with how to help students in distress, click here.
