The Clermont County Public Library is offering free QPR Gatekeeper Training Program for adults from 6:30-8 p.m., Monday, May 4 at the Union Township Branch Library. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 3 simple steps that 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. RSVP by calling the library at 248-0700 or sign up online.
Class size is limited. Participants must be 18 or older. The QPR Gatekeeper Training Program is NREPP approved evidenced-based training.
The training will be taught by Mary Makley Wolff, director of the Coalition for a Drug Free Clermont County. Learn more about Mental Health First Aid Training at www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org.
A grant from the Clermont County Mental Health & Recovery Board provided the funding for this free training.
