“Question, Persuade, Refer” is a nationally recognized suicide prevention program designed to educate persons to recognize and respond to the signs of suicidal thinking or behavior.
The workshop will help trainees recognize verbal, behavioral or situational clues that someone considering suicide may show and take steps to get the person professional help.
The presentation helps persons learn how to ask the suicide question, how to persuade the person to contact appropriate assistance and how to identify referral options.
