Hosted by gettrainedtohelp.com. The training is open to anyone who lives or works in Clackamas, Multnomah, or Washington County.
QPR is an educational program that teaches community members how to recognize that a person may be experiencing thoughts of suicide and offer first aid until more experienced help is available. Participants will learn about warning signs, risk factors, common myths about suicide, and a three-step suicide prevention first aid action plan. Participants will receive a booklet and wallet card with summary information at the end of the training. This training offers veteran-specific information that is not provided in other QPR trainings.
By the end of this training, you will know how:
- to recognize the early warning signs of suicide
- to ask the person about thoughts of suicide
- to persuade the person to get help
- to refer the person to help
- to offer hope
- to get help and save a life
