QPR Suicide Prevention-Train the Trainer Class

QPR-Become an instructor!

 

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer, three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide.

 

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and it can save lives. The Muskegon Suicide Prevention Coalition, Survivors of Suicide, and Muskegon Community College present this training. This class is designed to train you to be a certified instructor of QPR. Just as we have instructors in CPR we also want to have instructors of QPR.

 

We are building a “team” of QPR Instructors in Muskegon County.  Please consider this program.  The suicide rate remains very high in Muskegon County.  We look forward to working with community partners, businesses, and others in our community.  Perhaps you can instruct co-workers, church members, or other organizations and groups within our community.  Together we can make a difference.

 

This is an 8 hour training. We hope that you will sign-up and help us bring this training to your work place as well as our community. The class is one 8 hour day, 8am-5pm, and will take place on August 14th, 2015 at Muskegon Community College in Muskegon, Michigan.

 

The cost to become a Certified Instructor of QPR is $449.95.

If you cannot attend but would like to have QPR instruction for your organization, employees, or other group please contact us.
