Suicide prevention training is planned

(Continued)

MOORE —

· Participants will learn about the nature of suicidal communications, what forms these communications take, and how they may be used for QPR intervention.

· To gain perspective, participants are introduced to the history of suicide, suicide prevention, and the spectrum of modern day public health suicide prevention education efforts. The history, background and research support for QPR are reviewed.

· Participants then learn to market QPR, target potential students, and how to teach the QPR curriculum.

· Participants also learn to deal with the sensitive nature of this topic, survivor issues, and how to make immediate interventions and referrals.

· Each participant has the opportunity to practice the learned skills through role-plays.

After a QPR Certified Gatekeeper Instructor application is received and approved, a formal trainer agreement will be emailed to the applicant to officially confirm the commitment to conduct two classes a year for two years.

Final class enrollment will be confirmed upon receipt of the signed trainer agreement. To be in compliance with the grant sustainability requirements, the formal trainer agreement states that if a trainer does not complete his or her two-year obligation, the institution will be billed for the initial certification fee of $500.

NOTE:

To register and/or for questions email or call Darlynn Dietrich, Cleveland County Suicide Prevention Coordinator, at 694-1023 or darlynnd@ou.edu.
