A Poudre School District QPR suicide prevention training for parents and guardians will be held 6 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the PSD Partnership Center, 1630 S. Stover Street.
QPR is a 1 ½ hour training that teaches participants the warning signs for suicide and the three-step QPR (question, persuade and refer) method. During the training, participants will learn how to recognize someone at risk for suicide, how to ask someone about their potential suicide intent and how to listen to them. They will learn intervention skills and other skills to assist a person at risk for suicide. The training will also cover referral resources within PSD and the Fort Collins community, information about suicide as a public health concern, and myths and facts related to suicide.
There is no charge for the class, but registration is required. To register for the class, please contact Mellisa Romero at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-490-3264.
