Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis. This training is veteran-specific. Get trained today!
Suicide prevention starts with you. Learn how you can prevent suicide. Get trained on how to recognize the signs of suicide and how to talk to someone who might be at risk of suicide.
KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:
* How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
* How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
* The common causes of suicidal behavior
* The warning signs of suicide
* How to get help for someone in crisis
This is a FREE training and open to the public. Yet, this training specifically focuses on Veterans and their loved ones. We encourage anyone who has a Veteran in their life to come to the training. We highly recommend a Veteran come with the person they would reach out to when they need to talk.
A guest speaker will also share their personal experience on this issue and what worked to support them when they were struggling.
A light meal will be provided during the training. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly for food and materials and can share a link for those who would like to attend virtually.
