QPR with Living Hope December 2022 Edmonton

Dec 15 (9am till noon) This is a great class to take especially if you haven’t been able to register for our ASIST classes – also on the subject of suicide.
This training is being generously sponsored by Living Hope – City of Edmonton for all Edmonton and area residents. This $55/per person training is now available at no cost to Edmonton and area participants by using discount code provided by Living Hope.
Imagine Institute for Learning is certified by the QPR institute to provide suicide prevention training. QPR teaches the warning signs of a suicide crisis, how to offer hope through positive action and ultimately, how to assist in saving a life. The three basic steps for this training workshop include:
     Question – the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide;
     Persuade – the person to seek and accept help and support;
     Refer – the person to the appropriate resources.
This initiative was created to talk openly about suicide and to reduce the stigma that is attached. The plan is to provide better awareness and knowledge to service providers, front-line workers and others so that they are trained to detect signs of suicidality and equipped to refer the appropriate assistance and supports.
Zoom link and materials will be sent 1 – 2 days prior to the training.
