QPR Suicide Prevention Training Workshop, Feb. 22

Monday, February 11, 2013

“Ask a question, save a life.”  For those who have ever wondered what to say to a troubled friend, an upcoming QPR workshop may be for you.  Question, Persuade, and Refer - 3 simple steps anyone can take 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 to recognize the warning signs of a suicidal person and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.

The UNCW Counseling Center is offering a QPR Gatekeeper course to the campus community from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Feb. 22 in DePaolo Hall.  Seating is limited and registration is required - contact Gina Speight at x23746 or email speightg@uncw.edu to do so.  Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate noting them as a Certified QPR Gatekeeper.
