Every 17 minutes, at least six Americans lose a loved one to suicide. Ninety percent of suicidal individuals show warning signs which provide an opportunity to intervene.

The Anoka-Ramsey Community Counseling Department and the college clubs and organizations are working to address this national crisis and help concerned people get involved by sponsoring a free event:

QPR Suicide Prevention Workshop
Monday, April 29, 2013
11 a.m. to noon or1 to 2 p.m.
Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room

Community members are encouraged to attend. Several local mental health agencies will be in attendance as well.

More About QPR
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer which are three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.  In one hour, participants can learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to Question, Persuade, and Refer. Participants will walk away from this training with the skills to help someone who is depressed, discouraged and needing help.
