Free Suicide Prevention Trainings in the New Year

The Cape and Islands Suicide Prevention Coalition (CISPC) offers free Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training.  Question, Persuade, and Refer are three simple steps that ANYONE (parents, friends, volunteers, ministers, nurses, supervisors, firefighters, bartenders, others) can learn to help prevent suicide. QPR teaches how to recognize a mental health emergency and how to get a person-at-risk connected to the help they need. The training is free, open to the public and registration is preferred.
