The pandemic has brought an increase in stress for most of us. This level of stress may be unprecedented for some and may be leading to thoughts of suicide. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Americans ages 10-34. Through this educational session, you can learn about the signs and symptoms of suicide risk in youth and adults. Anyone can learn how to provide support and intervention for those who are struggling. In addition, the session will present an overview of mental health and well-being and the effects of trauma.
Please note: This program contains an evidence-based QPR session. 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. 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.
Masks are requested if you are not vaccinated.
