Suicide Prevention Training Session (April 10, Fort Campbell)
Tuesday, April 10, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CDT)
Fort Campbell North, KY
TSPN’s Montgomery-Houston-Humphreys-Stewart County Suicide Prevention Task Force is offering a free training opportunity regarding the prevention of suicide.
The session will run from 9-11 AM on Tuesday, April 10, at Cole Park Commons (a.k.a. the Golf Course), Building 1610, located at 1610 101st Airborne Division Road, on the Kentucky side of the Fort Campbell campus. (The building is accessible via Gate 1—head for the first stop light, and the building is on the left.) Participants are welcome to stay for lunch at one of the three restaurants and snack bars inside the complex.
The training session includes a two-hour presentation of the evidence-based "Question, Persuade, Refer" (QPR) suicide prevention curriculum. Participants will learn about the warning signs of suicide, how to engage severely depressed or actively suicidal people and talk them out of immediate drastic action, and how to connect them with local mental health and crisis intervention resources. No clinical background or prior knowledge of suicide prevention is needed ahead of the session.
Two contact hours are available for participants. Only 60 seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We look forward to seeing you at this training session and thank you for your interest in preventing suicide within one of our most vulnerable populations.
