Suicide Prevention Training

Click Here to Register

The Communities That Care® Operating System makes special efforts to assess local data for risks that are on the rise for youth and families.  Recently, priority has been given to an increase in depressive factors and suicide ideation and related behaviors.  Tooele City, in collaboration with Valley Behavioral Health, is pleased to sponsor QPR: Question, Pursuade, & Refer.  This evidence-based suicide prevention program is ideal for any member of the community who would like to:

•  Recognize the warning signs and risks associated with suicidal behavior;

•  Learn communication skills to most effectively decrease self-harm and suicide attempts;

•  Connect those in need with local resources for professional care and treatment.

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives.  This FREE, evidence-based program will help participants recognize the warning signs, risk factors, and common behaviors of those at risk for suicide. Participants will learn skills on how to best help and potentially save lives of loved ones. Participants 12 and older are welcome to enroll. This training is for anyone who would like resources on this important issue.

Contact Heidi Peterson at 435.843.2188 for more information or to register for the next QPR Training.
