Suicide prevention training will focus on QPR

Echo Pilot - 10/5/2017

The Mental Health Association will present Save a Life: suicide prevention training using QPR on Thursday, Oct. 19, at The Life Center, 35 N. Carlisle St.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer - three simple steps that 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.

QPR was developed by Dr. Paul Quinnett, Ph.D., founder and CEO of the QPR Institute. Quinnett has been a clinical psychologist and trainer for more than 35 years.

The training is free. Register online at:
