Workshop Description: This workshop will teach you QPR, which stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer, the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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, offer hope and options, and help the person to get help. This training is designed for anyone: parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, attorneys, coaches and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
Bio: Kevin has been the Director of Training and Employee Engagement at Mental Health Partners since 2015 and prior to this assignment was principal of Boulder High School from 2009 – 2014. Kevin is a certified mental health first aid, suicide prevention, and trauma trainer.
