TSPN’s Montgomery-Houston-Humphreys-Stewart County Suicide Prevention Task Force is offering a free training opportunity regarding the prevention of suicide.
The session will run from 9-11 AM on Thursday, July 26, at Gateway Medical Center, located at 651 Dunlop Lane in Clarksville. The session will be held in the Liberty Room (Conference Rooms B and C).
The training session includes a two-hour presentation of the evidence-based "Question, Persuade, Refer" (QPR) suicide prevention curriculum. Participants will learn about the warning signs of suicide, how to engage severely depressed or actively suicidal people and talk them out of immediate drastic action, and how to connect them with local mental health and crisis intervention resources. No clinical background or prior knowledge of suicide prevention is needed ahead of the session.
Two contact hours are available for participants. Only 65 seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We look forward to seeing you at this training session and thank you for your interest in preventing suicide within one of our most vulnerable populations.
