Suicide Prevention Training Being Offered To Baraga County Residents

Question. Persuade. Refer, or QPR, is a suicide prevention awareness training. This program helps community members identify the warning signs of suicide and how to help the suffering individual to find help.

The QPR program runs about an hour long. You do not need to a be mental health professional to take this program. Any one at least 16 years and older can take QPR as it is meant for everyday people to learn the warning signs and help people get the help they need.

This program is free. QPR is being offered through a grant received by the Upper Peninsula Coalition Network and made possible by the Superior Health Foundation and Northcare Network. Every county in the Upper Peninsula has been given the funds to train one person in their county to be a trainer and volunteer to train others.

This program will be offered as needed in Baraga County. If you are located in Baraga County and would like this training for you, your friends and family, a group of people, or a business, etc. please contact the Baraga County Communities That Care Coordinator Carrie Rich at 906-201-4024 or baragacountyctc@gmail.com for more information on scheduling.
