Suicide prevention training offered

SummitStone Health Partners is offering free suicide prevention training during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in September. Our free QPR training (Question, Persuade, Refer) teaches people how to respond to someone who may be having suicidal thoughts, as well as how to identify warning signs of suicide, how to get help for someone in crisis and how to apply the training in real-life situations.

“Suicide is the most preventable form of death, yet we know that talking about suicidal intent reduces anxiety, opens up communication and lowers the risk of an impulsive act. We need to learn to become comfortable talking about suicide, and that is exactly what QPR training is designed to do.” -certified QPR trainer Robyn Potter
