Suicide Prevention Training

qpr-flier-spring-2022

The Counseling Center is offering suicide prevention training for faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, January 26, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. in Old Main 203.

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. To learn more about QPR, click here.

Those who have previously participated in this training are encouraged to take it again to refresh their skills.

Registration for QPR training is encouraged but walk-ins are also welcome! To register for this training or for more details, email Megan Valery at valerym@canisius.edu.
