Our training team is in Bega and we will be running a new suicide awareness QPR session for the community in Bega on Friday May 10th.
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 help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognise the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
QPR training will provide you with:
• knowledge and skills to identify warning signs that someone may be suicidal
• confidence to talk to them about suicidal thoughts
• connect them with professional care.
This morning session will be held in The Balawarn Meeting Room at Bega Valley Commemorative Civic Center.
