The Counseling Center is offering suicide prevention training for students, faculty and staff on Thursday, September 19 from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in Old Main 204.
QPR, the “CPR” for suicide prevention, 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 to register for this training. Space is limited. To learn more about QPR, click here.
