In the spirit of strengthening our community, members of the faith community are invited to join us along with a diverse group of leaders and professionals, representing all faiths and a variety of lived experiences, to further grow and learn together. Our hope is to convene passionate individuals with a desire to receive training, tools and resources to better support themselves, their families and their communities of faith to participate in the HELP, HEALTH, HEALING & HOPE: BRIDGING OUR TEMPLES faith series.
Question, Persuade Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Training
Date: Thursday, September 29, 2022
Time: Noon - 2 p.m.
Location: Columbus Metropolitan Library (96 S. Grant Ave., Columbus, OH 43215)
Instructor: Dr. Ameena Kemavor
Faith leaders and professionals are in unique position to connect with people in our community, sometimes when they are at their most vulnerable. However, fear of saying the wrong thing can prevent even those trained to help others from talking about suicide. This QPR Training will help participants learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, persuade someone to seek help and refer someone to the most appropriate resources.
