About the event
Suicidal ideation is far more common than people think, and tragically, the national number of suicides continues to climb. Be a part of the solution! Please consider taking just 1-1/2 hours to become a Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) gatekeeper! QPR is an evidence-based certificate training good for two years. You will learn to recognize warning signs and respond to someone in a mental health crisis. There is a group role play that will help you practice the skills. You could be the one to save a life! This training is for anyone aged 16+.
Positive Directions and The Hub both offer QPR training every month online and can bring the training to a school or organization. The training is also available in Spanish; contact Margaret at email@example.com.
Please note: In 2024, our monthly training will be on the *second* Wednesday of each month, except for February when it will take place on the 1st Wednesday. The evening training is sometimes postponed when we do not have enough sign-ups.
