MHAOK offers free suicide prevention training during Mental Health Awareness Month

Today we offered our annual suicide prevention training, called QPR, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. QPR stands for Question Persuade Refer, and it is an hour-long course that teaches lay people how to intervene if they suspect that someone is battling suicidal ideation. It provides anyone the basic tools to keep those in need alive until professional help can be obtained. Think CPR for the brain. We were thrilled to have News on 6 join us and help share the importance of talking about suicide. Click here to read or watch their news story.
