Event description

Description

This month the QPR Institute is providing free training to all attendees on how to recognize and respond to a suicide crisis. QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer, three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives.

The fundamental premise of QPR's effectiveness is based on the belief, and growing research, that those most at-risk for suicide do not self-refer. To locate these individuals, identify their suicidal communications and get them to needed services is at the heart of the QPR approach to suicide prevention.

As a QPR Gatekeeper, you will be trained to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope to someone
  • Know how to get help and save a life

This event is hosted by EmployIndy, in partnership with the Zero Suicides for Indiana Youth Grant.

Ecosystem Enrichment, held on the fourth Thursday each month, is intended for career navigators, frontline staff, and other workforce development professionals to share best practices, learn new opportunities for clients, and provide a space for shared strategic direction of local workforce development. Browse topics for key takeaways and resources from previous Ecosystem Enrichment meetings at WorkOneIndy.com/ecosystem-enrichment.
