Event description

Description

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

Just as people trained in CPR can help save a life, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

QPR is an emergency mental health intervention for suicidal persons, the intent of which is also to identify and interrupt the crisis and direct that person to the proper care.

  • Early Recognition of suicide | The sooner warning signs are detected and help sought, the better the outcome of a suicidal crisis will be.
  • Early QPR | Asking someone about the presence of suicidal thoughts and feelings opens up a conversation that may lead to a referral for help.
  • Early intervention and referral | Referral to local resources or calling for evaluation and possible referral is critical.

In QPR the general public is educated about the known warning signs of a suicide crisis: expressions of hopelessness, depression, giving away prized possessions, talking of suicide, securing lethal means, and then taught how to respond.


Parking Information:

Parking is available in the parking garage located at 405 Water Street (45402) which is accessible by turning at the traffic light located at the intersection of East Monument Ave. and Water Street. Parking is pro-rated up to 3 hours - for 3-hours or more, the daily rate is $8.00. ABM, which manages the garage, no longer offers validation.

Alternatively, you may park in the west parking lot (across Water Street from ADAMHS) but you must print your Eventbrite ticket and place it on your dashboard. Please park as close to the hotel as possible. Those parking in the lot without the Eventbrite ticket displayed or a tenant parking pass may be fined or towed at the owner's expense.

To access 409 Monument Avenue, cross Water Street; and head towards the four-story brick building in front of you. The entrance is to the left of the window that has signage for Bridge Credit Union. Once inside the building take the elevator to the 2nd floor Training Suite.
