Newton Cares: Coalition for Suicide Prevention and Mental Health is working diligently to train as many people as possible in the suicide prevention technique called QPR – Question, Persuade, Refer. Two upcoming trainings take place on January 6, from 4 to 6PM (for teens only) and January 15, from 6 to 8PM (for adults only). Please register in advance at: www.newtonma.gov/newtoncares.
The more people who know how to act, the more lives may be saved. Please consider being trained. QPR teaches ordinary citizens how to recognize a mental-health emergency and how to get a person at risk the help they need. Participants will learn how to: recognize the warning signs of suicide, offer hope, and get help and refer.
Space is limited. Registration is required. Training is FREE.
