QPR – Suicide Prevention  (back)
 
Description:
QPR –Question. Persuade. Respond.

EAP has an ambitious goal: to reduce the number of suicides that take place in Wisconsin each year. How will this be accomplished? By offering evidence-based, effective training to as many employees as possible.

“Suicide affects an entire community and, because it is a complex issue, it will take a community to work on it.” Pat Derer, President, HOPES (Helping Others Prevent and Educate about Suicide)

OHR staff is invited to attend a QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) training to learn how you can get involved. Just as committed employees save lives by donating blood, signing up for organ donation, or getting trained in CPR, becoming a certified QPR gatekeeper can potentially save a life. Join our own Susan Fuszard to learn about suicide myths and facts, raise your awareness of the link between suicide and mental illness, and gain simple skills that will help you recognize when someone needs help, and what to do about it.

In the meantime, check out the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s social media game for a fun way to boost your own support network – and learn how to be a strong supporter for someone in crisis.
