ABOUT THE EVENT: This official QPR training allows attendees to become dual WCO safety and QPR “gatekeeper” certified. The session is free for WCO members and sponsors. Jeff Ditzenberger, will be our facilitator.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer — three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. This type of training is not for health care professionals, it’s for ordinary people like you and me. It’s not intended to be a form of counseling or treatment. Learn more about the QPR method of suicide prevention. See you on March 18!
