Suicide Prevention Zoom, A QPR with Hegira Health, hosted by Dearborn Area Chamber April 29th
April 29 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The Chamber is honored to offer the community a free Suicide Training class with Hegira Health.
Join us on Thursday, April 29th from 9am – 10:30a for a QPR: Question, Persuade, and Refer. This training is referred to as a “gatekeeper” training meaning that it is great for anyone regardless of their profession or role. It teaches individuals how to identify signs of suicide, how to do some screening with individuals and engage them in conversation about their suicidal thoughts, how to provide hope and perform a brief intervention and to refer an individual to an appropriate source that will be able to help with the suicidal symptoms.
After training, each attendee will become certified in QPR. Like CPR, anyone can become certified and perform QPR.
QPR is a screening tool, and not to be used in place of counseling, or a plan from a mental health professional.
