SCC to recognize Suicide Awareness in September

SCC is recognizing Suicide Awareness throughout the month of September. We will be providing faculty, staff, and students with QPR training in addition to the attached presentation.

What is QPR?  QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer —3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

The mission of QPR is to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.  QPR will train people to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.

Both sessions will be open to the community. If you would like to attend you may register at the link provided.  http://tinyurl.com/rejthestigma
