QPR ‘Question, Persuade and Refer’ Training
May 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm MDT
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps 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. This FREE course will last about an hour and you will walk away with resources to help someone in need.
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
Two training will take place on Wednesday, May 8th from 6- 7 p.m.
- South Summit County Services Building, 110 N Main, Kamas, Utah 84036 (Auditorium)
- Summit County Library, 85 North 50 East, Coalville, Utah 84017 (Conference Room)
Alyssa Mitchell and Shelley Worley with the Summit County Health Department assist in coordinating QPR and other Suicide Prevention trainings and programs in Summit County.
Light refreshments will be served.
