Mental Health Awareness Month: QPR Gatekeeper Training
6:30 PM
Missoula Public Library
Description:
QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) is a suicide prevention gatekeeper training session with the goal of training everyday individuals to recognize the warning signs of suicide, and to persuade and refer someone to the appropriate help. Just like CPR, QPR is meant to be a form of peer intervention until professional help can be sought out. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers).
This training is provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Training session is held in the Large Meeting Room. 6:30-8:00 PM.
Age Group: All Ages
