QPR Training for Suicide Prevention

Event


Suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency and the 11th leading cause of death in America.

You can help to save a life! This 90 minute training is designed to equip you with the necessary tools to recognize the warning signs of suicide.

You will learn the three-step QPR method Question, Persuade, Refer.

The QPR training is similar to by-stander training in that it teaches recognition and intervention with people who might be suicidal. 

After completion of this training you will have the knowledge, resources and courage to be a QPR Gatekeeper. Ask a question, save a life!

This QPR session will be presented by Nancy Albert, LMSW, counselor at the Student Counseling Center. Albert has worked with suicidal individuals throughout the past 10 years at Adelphi and taught QPR trainings to people of all ages for the past 3 years. 


Space is limited, so reserve your seat ASAP.
