QPR: Suicide Prevention Training Sept. 12

August 22, 2012

On Wednesday, September 12th, from 11:30AM to 1:00PM, QPR Suicide Prevention Training will be held in W20-407 (Stratton Student Center, 4th Floor). QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer – three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver 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 refer someone to help. The presentation will be made by Zan Barry, Senior Program Manager at Community Wellness in MIT Medical. It is free and open to the MIT community. Xiaolu Hsi, Psychologist from Mental Health and Counseling Service, will be available to answer questions about MH&C services. This program is co-sponsored by Active Minds@MIT.
