Join us for a virtual event and learn more about suicide and how to discuss it.
With suicide being the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. our desire as an organization is to learn more about what the common causes of suicidal behavior, what are the warning signs of suicide, and how do we get help for someone in crisis.
Atlanta-area mental health counselor & suicide prevention instructor Robert Vore, MS, APC, NCC will present on current issues facing adolescents & young adults, common warning signs for suicidality, & practical steps to take if you're concerned someone is considering suicide. This training comes with a certification through the QPR Institute, an evidence-based program for suicide prevention.
KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:
How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
The common causes of suicidal behavior
The warning signs of suicide
How to get help for someone in crisis
Research has shown that self-guided online course work to be just as effective as learning QPR in a classroom. And, in areas like knowledge-retention and self-efficacy, our online course is significantly more effective.
To reinforce training, all self-paced learners receive an enriched program review (an electronic version of the QPR booklet and printable wallet card) immediately after completing training. Recap and review emails are sent out periodically to help the learner keep the QPR training fresh in mind.
