QPR Suicide Prevention Training
Parkview LaGrange Hospital is offering free suicide prevention training to the community throughout the year.
Trainers from the hospital will teach QPR, which stands for question, persuade and refer. The goal of QPR classes is to save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. Just like CPR training, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis.
Any adult can learn QPR is a few hours and become prepared to recognize the signs of someone at risk of suicide, offer hope and connect that person to the care needed.
Due to COVID-19, the decision to hold trainings virtually or in person will be made on a class-by-class basis.
Classes are limited in size and are open to anyone age 18 and older. To participate in virtual classes, individuals will need to have access to a computer, tablet or smartphone with the free app Microsoft Teams.
Registration is required at least two days prior to the preferred training date, and capacity is limited. For additional information about the virtual sessions, or to inquire about training for small groups, call (260) 463-9270.
