QPR Suicide Prevention
The tragic death of Robin Williams reminds us how suddenly and sharply suicide can affect us. In addition to the discussions remembering Robin and the great work he did, there has also been highlighting of the need for suicide awareness and an understanding of how preventable a tragedy it is. While suicide is currently the 11th leading cause of death in the US, it is certainly the most preventable cause.
What is QPR?
QPR is a 3 step method for suicide prevention which anyone can learn. It has been said that QPR is to a Suicide Crisis as CPR is to a heart attack.
CE You! offers QPR training periodically as part of the Stop the Crisis Save a life Seminar. QPR training can also be brought to your school, agency, workplace or religious institution. QPR can be effectively taught to adults as well as older children.
When you bring QPR to your institution participants will receive a QPR Gatekeeper Certificate.
