Lakewood Hosting Suicide Prevention Training Session

January 19, 2016

Get trained. Save a life.

The Lakewood Area Collaborative is hosting a training session, teaching residents how to recognize a crisis and warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. The free event is slated to take place at the Woman’s Pavilion at Lakewood Park from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 2.

The training session will highlight a technique called Question, Persuade, Refer. The goal of the QPR is to prevent suicide deaths in Cuyahoga County, and reduce stigma associated with mental illness. Residents will also learn how to:

  • Recognize the warning signs
  • Offer hope
  • Help save a live with community resources.
