Volunteer Training: QPR Suicide Prevention
December 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join OAS and certified QPR trainer, Devan Larsen for this training provided through TRACEs. QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer. Participants will be trained on how to recognize the signs of suicide, how to ask the question if someone is thinking about suicide, how to persuade them to get help, and lastly, how to refer them to community and national resources. It is not a form of counseling or treatment, but a technique on how to facilitate a conversation that offers hope and help to someone who is thinking about ending their life.
This event is FREE for you, and for every individual who comes OAS receives $25 from a grant!
