    Suicide is a serious public health problem in the United States with data from the CDC showing suicide rates increasing.  However, suicide prevention experts are aware there are actions one can take to help someone who is in crisis, prevent suicide and save a life.

    This month we welcome our friends from the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Portage County to provide a workshop titled “QPR: A Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training”.

    QPR – Question. Persuade. Refer. is a 90-minute lifesaving, evidence-based, suicide prevention intervention training.  Become a “Gatekeeper” helps put someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

    What You’ll Learn:

    • Recognize the warning signs and risk factors for suicide
    • Intervene and ask tough questions when someone is at risk for suicide
    • Refer someone at risk of suicide to an appropriate lifesaving resource
