West Linn-Wilsonville to Offer Free Community Suicide Prevention Training

Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 2/27/2020 9:00:00 AM

West Linn-Wilsonville staff will offer free training in Question, Persuade Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Training on March 10. The free training will be offered from 9-11 a.m. at the District Office; 22210 SW Stafford Road, Tualatin.

The training session is taught by licensed District Clinical Social Workers and teaches skills that help with recognition when someone is thinking about suicide and how to refer individuals for additional support. Just like how you don’t need to be a licensed paramedic to learn and administer CPR, you don’t need to be a licensed counselor to help a person who is thinking about suicide.

Registration for the free training is required, and all participants must be 18 years or older. To register, please go to https://tinyurl.com/qprmar2020.
