Description

Would you spend one hour to learn how to save a life?

The signs of crisis are all around us. Do you know how to recognize them?


In this two-part training, you will learn the three simple steps anyone can use to help save a life from suicide. You'll walk away equipped to notice “pre-warning” signs and know how to take action steps before the issues become serious.

MQC Program Director Kimberly Britt Petersen will kick off the training by teaching the QPR method—Question, Persuade and Refer—so that you can be empowered to make a positive difference in the life of someone you know.

Then Joannie DeBrito, LCSW will jump into the Alive to Thrive curriculum, the exhaustive suicide prevention resource developed by Focus on the Family. This curriculum is centered around building a strong foundation at home and preparing kids for healthy living.

Together, we can learn how to recognize the warning signs and learn effective tools on how to intervene when crisis hits.

You just might save a life.
