QPR-Suicide Prevention Skills-Lunch Time Learning

August 15, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:45 pm

There is hope for preventing suicide. Let’s all participate and learn.

In just over a year and a half, more than 2,350 people in Muskegon County have been trained in how to help someone who is considering taking their own life. Communities that know QPR skills have fewer suicides. Become a certified QPR Gatekeeper!

Most people who die by suicide have discussed their desire to die before taking their life. Most of us do not know what to say or do in those times. When confronted by a suicidal person we can get confused, upset, and concerned about what to do. The steps are fairly simple and this class will provide you with these steps.

This class starts at 11:30 am sharp and usually takes just over an hour. Bring a sack lunch!

Join us for this very important training being offered free of charge.

Do you have a group that you want trained and you can’t make this date? Call and we will come to you or your business to teach these important skills. 231-724-6618. Ask about getting a QPR for your organization.

GET CERTIFIED IN Q.P.R. today!
