How to save a life: 3 free trainings

September 22, 2017

 

Did you know that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US? (See current statistics from AFSP here.) Have you ever asked someone if they were considering suicide? Asking that question could be the step that makes the difference.

 

In recognition of suicide awareness month, please consider attending a free prevention training. Please also share these flyers and encourage your family, friends, colleagues, faith leaders, doctors and others to attend.

 

General public: Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) training will be offered separately in English and Spanish on October 12 in Norwalk, 1-3pm.
