Free QPR Suicide Prevention Training
Friday, April 15, 12-2 p.m. (it's ok to leave for 1 p.m. class!)

In collaboration with Newton Cares (a City of Newton collaboration for suicide prevention and mental health), the April 15 Hot Topic Lunch will offer "Question, Persuade, Refer" (QPR) training for suicide prevention.

QPR is a simple educational program that 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
  • Get help and refer
We will meet in Noyes Hall from noon - 2 p.m., with free lunch provided. The facilitators are aware that some students will need to leave early for 1 p.m. classes but will also be prepared to continue the discussion. The session includes a 60- to 90-minute interactive presentation followed by discussion and Q&A.
