REACH4HOPE offers trainings and resources that can help you learn suicide warning signs, talk openly and honestly about suicide, offer hope to someone in crisis, and save a life.
Email or call Kim Hutchison to sign up for QPR Gatekeeper Training.
Much like CPR, the fundamentals of QPR are easily learned and the application may save a life. The more gatekeepers trained in these skills, the more lives will be saved.
Research shows that the majority of those who attempt suicide show warning signs. Yet, those in a position to do something about it are often reluctant to get involved. Suicide is an uncomfortable topic and can lead a potential helper to denial. Overcoming denial is an important step. People who are thinking about suicide are not necessarily being irrational. They view it as a solution to their problems. Gatekeepers can help them realize there are other solutions
- Step 1: Ask a Question “Are you thinking about suicide?”
- Step 2: Persuade them to get help
- Step 3: Refer them to a mental health professional (add)
In less than two hours, you can learn skills on how to help prevent suicide. A certified QPR instructor can come to your home, business, or faith community to conduct a free QPR training (minimum of five people).
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course that teaches you how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps you identify, understand, and respond to signs of addictions and mental illnesses.
