MRU is proud to provide two suicide prevention workshops this fall: QPR and ASIST.
QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) is a 90 minute workshop . It supports people in learning to recognize signs of distress and builds awareness of suicide.
ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is an interactive and practice-based two-day course which teaches participants how to provide suicide first aid interventions. Through completion of the training, participants will be able to:
• understand how personal and societal beliefs and values impact views on suicide
• provide tailored guidance and suicide first aid
• identify an effective safety plan and know how to implement it
• recognize important components of suicide prevention
If you are interested in either of these workshops, visit the MRU wellness workshops website in order to register.
