The Counseling Center is offering suicide prevention training for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, January 24, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. in Old Main 303.

QPR, the “CPR for suicide prevention”, stands for Question the person about suicide, Persuade the person to get help and Refer the person to 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. All members of the Canisius community are encouraged to take this training.  The more people we have trained in suicide prevention, the wider our safety net to keep people safe! Those who have previously participated in this training are encouraged to take it again to refresh their skills.
