QPR Suicide Prevention

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR (Question- Persuade-Refer) learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.

The BHA of Grundy County and Grundy County Veterans Assistance Commission are partnering with the Sertoma Centre to bring a QPR training to Grundy County on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 2 to 3:30 p.m., in the Grundy County Administration Center, 1320 Union St., Morris IL.

The training by itself is free.  If you would like to purchase CEUs for $15, they are available for social workers, respiratory therapists, psychologists, occupational therapists, nutritionists, nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, dental hygienists, counselors, athletic trainers, administrators, and accupuncturists. CEU payment should be made to Continuing Education Institute of Illinois.

Please register for the QPR training by November 13, 2017 by contacting Devan at 815-941-0852 or [email protected]  Please see the Grundy QPR Flyer 11.15.17 for more information.
