This class is designed to raise suicide awareness and provide practical intervention techniques. In addition to understanding the myths and reasons behind suicide, it’s also imperative to assess the lethality of the suicidal person. This class will give members of public safety assessment questions based off the “QPR model” to ask the suicidal person in order to help them de-escalate. Experts agree that 80%-90% of those individuals completing suicide often communicate their suicidal intent to someone. To the untrained, these usually subtle communications are often ignored, which is why a successful intervention, applied by those trained in suicide prevention and intervention skills, has been proven to save lives. The training and awareness techniques provided in the class will help provide the confidence necessary to recognize the suicidal danger signs in order to ask the right questions at the right time. In simple terms…ask a question, save a life!
