Encourage Students to Sign-up for QPR Session

There will be a QPR training for students on Friday, October 5, from 1-3pm in the BRIDGE Center. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.  Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. There is no cost to attend. Students must sign-up to attend in advance by emailing Kristen Buglione, director of health education.
