The La Grange Park Police Department will host a seminar presented by Tandra Rutledge, MA, Director of Business Development, Riveredge Hospital titled QPR: Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention on Monday, September 23, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Village Hall Board Room.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. The QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is designed to teach lay and professional "gatekeepers" how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer a person at risk of suicide (e.g., family members, ministers, doctors, nurses, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers, etc.).
