QPR Training

Student Counseling Services is excited to offer QPR training on Oct. 22 from 2 – 4 p.m.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.

If you are interested in attending the training, please contact George Gressman at ggressman@stetson.edu to register by Oct. 18.

The training is limited to 30 participants, so please sign up to guarantee your spot!
