Miami University- QPR Training

Wednesday, October 13, 2021
6:00 pm8:00 pm

Step into a conversation on mental health in this two-part series. Come to one or both parts to learn and have safe conversations about mental health.

The first event is QPR Gatekeeper training on Wed. 10/13/21 6:00-8:00 pm in 126 McGuffey Hall. Like CPR teaches how to assist someone in a physical health crisis, QPR trains how to assist someone in a mental health crisis. Learn how to recognize warning signs, how to ask the suicide question, how to practice active listening to persuade someone to get help, and access the resources to refer them to. Participants will receive training materials and certificate. Hours can be applied to Ohio Certification Prevention Specialist Assistant and other certifications.

The second event on Sun. 10/24/21 5:00-6:15 pm in 121 McGuffey Hall is a Community Conversation led by the Butler County Suicide Prevention Coalition. Join with others in a safe environment to consciously examine in small groups how to address stigma and the epidemic of anxiety and depression that is plaguing people especially at this time. Free dinner will be provided.

Feel free to come to just one event or both. Those who are in attendance at both parts of the series will receive a $25 gift card to Famous Footwear.

Step into the conversation and be part of the solution. Together we can write a new story . . . working as a community, reducing stigma and the number of suicides every year until not one life is lost.
