Description: 

This training uses the QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) model for Suicide Prevention, an educational program designed to teach lay and professional "gatekeepers" the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. We will review suicide myths and facts, discuss issues specific to suicide and substance use, and identify warning signs and suicide clues (direct, indirect, behavioral, and situational).
The training will focus on each step in the QPR model: 1. Question (ways to ask the “suicide question”, both directly and indirectly), 2. Persuade (how to persuade someone to stay alive), and 3. Refer (how to make a referral to get needed help). Information specific to youth and young adult substance use treatment programs will be applied.

Objectives:

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to

Educate participants about the impact of suicide on society and develop an enhanced understanding of trauma and mental health's impact concerning suicide

  • Identify warning signs of suicidal ideation as they relate to an individual’s physiological, cognitive, emotional and belief systems
