Tippecanoe Valley to Host “QPR for Suicide Prevention”
The Tippecanoe Valley Community Mental Health Task Force and the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation invite the public to attend an upcoming session of “QPR for Suicide Prevention” training scheduled on Tuesday, September 15, at Tippecanoe Valley Middle School from 4:15-5:15 p.m.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone for help.
The training session will be conducted by Huntter Randall, Corporate Training Coordinator for the Bowen Center for Human Services. Mr. Randall is a highly skilled trainer who brings a vast background of meaningful and applicable experiences to his training sessions. Participants will find the training to be interesting and enlightening.
Those interested in attending need only report to the main office of the school a few minutes prior to the start of the training session.
