QPR Suicide Prevention Training, Sunday, February 17 at 2pm, Smith Chapel at First Church of Christ, Congregational, 81 High Street, Suffield, CT
First Church will host a QPR Training in conjunction with Suffield Youth Services and Suffield Academy.
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. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.QPR can be learned in as little as one hour. Call the Church Office 860-668-7223. All are welcome.
