If someone you know was considering suicide, would you recognize the warning signs and know how to help? Colorado is consistently ranked as one of the top ten states for suicide rates. Learn what you can do to help when someone is in suicide crisis, and gain the confidence to take action and save a life.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month- a time to join together to promote suicide prevention awareness.  As a part of our suicide prevention efforts, during September, we will be offering FREE QPR community trainings.

Please find the attached flyer for upcoming FREE QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) trainings held at Jefferson Center, 4851 Independence Street in Wheat Ridge, CO on the following dates:
  • Friday, September 14th from 8:30-10am; Clear Creek Conference Room
  • Tuesday, September 25th from 9-10:30am; Coal Creek Conference Room

These trainings are coordinated by Jefferson Center and supported  by a Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention grant, funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support suicide prevention work.

QPR is a 90 minute gatekeeper training that can be customized to fit your audience. 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 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. Those who attend will learn to:
  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope              
  • Know how to get help and save a life

This training is open to any community members working with youth, ages 10-24, in Jefferson County. Please feel free to share this informational flyer with anyone who might benefit from this training or be interested in attending.  Seating is limited. 

           September 25th
