QPR: Suicide Prevention

Wednesday, May 15 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

QPR: Question. Persuade. Refer.

Three simple steps  that anyone can  learn to help save a  life from suicide.

Just as people  trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver  help save thousands of lives each year, people  trained in QPR learn how to recognize the  warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to  question, persuade, and refer someone to  help. Each year thousands of Americans, like  you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a  friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. QPR  can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as  little as one hour.

As a QPR-trained  Gatekeeper you  will learn to:

  • recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • know how to offer hope
  • know how to get help and save a life

This free 90-Minute training will be run by Justine Ginsberg,  BSN, RN Justine is the Community Health Coordinator and  Program Director – RGH for Farmington Valley Health District.

If you are a Parent, Caregiver, Veteran, Educator, Teenager, or compassionate human,  you are welcome to  attend this workshop.

Please register; this session is limited to 30 people. If we exceed capacity we will offer another session.

Reminders will be sent out before the program.
