Individuals often spend a large portion of their day at a workplace and, in doing so, get to know their coworkers over time. As a result, they may be in a good position to notice changes in behavior that suggest risk for suicide.
This presentation consists of how to apply suicide prevention techniques through QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer.). QPR is not intended to be a form of counseling or treatment but is intended to offer hope through positive action. QPR is also intended to help recognize the warning signs, clues, and suicidal communications of people in trouble and to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy. This training will:
- Discuss facts concerning suicide and suicide prevention
- Recognize warning signs of those who may be thinking about suicide
- Give information on how to ask the Question about suicide, Persuade them to get help, and Refer to the proper resource
You may RSVP to any staff member by calling 1-800-543-5080 or RSVP online. When replying, please let us know whether or not you will be joining in the golf outing after the presentation.
