Lock Haven University’s Clearfield campus will partner with the Clearfield-Jefferson Suicide Prevention team to offer a QPR Suicide Training on Tuesday, October 24. The program will train individuals to be able to recognize the warning signs of suicide, know how to offer hope, and know how to get help and save a life.
WHAT: QPR Suicide Prevention Training
WHEN: Tuesday, October 24 from 11:00am until noon
WHERE: LHU Clearfield, Founders’ Hall
WHO: Linsey Mizic, 814-768-3699, email@example.com
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR 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.
In the one hour training, individuals will become a QPR-trained Gatekeeper, which, according to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, supervisors, police officers, caseworkers, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
There is no charge for this program but an RSVP is kindly requested. To reserve a seat contact Judy Hughes at 814.768.3401, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
