FREE Q.P.R. Seminar

posted Nov 5, 2013, 2:12 PM by Brianna Rogers   [ updated Aug 27, 2014, 11:07 AM ]

Would you like to become more active in the suicide prevention movement? Want to know more about the suicide prevention topic? Want to know more about Fresno SOSL and how you can help?

Leann Gouveia, M.P.A, Fresno SOSL executive director is teaching a 3-hour Q.P.R. (Question, Persuade and Refer) seminar about suicide awareness and prevention which includes: recognizing warning signs/risk factors, common misconceptions/myths, how to address your concerns and ask the suicide question, how to persuade someone to get help, and who/how to refer to help. There will be a community panel for the last half hour of the course.

Just as so many of us are familiar with C.P.R. and the valuable steps that can save a life, Q.P.R. offers the same simple steps that you can implement to save a life from suicide. Q.P.R. is not a form of counseling or therapy. It is designed for any of us to be more vigilant to those around us.

Additionally, as survivors, we know little about why our loved one died by suicide. The fear of understanding suicide makes the grief process very difficult. With some education, survivors can better understand why their loved one died.

For medical/mental health professionals, C.E.U.’s are available, please contact Ashley at the below email. Everyone will receive a certificate of completion.

This is a free educational seminar. Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 26th, by 5:00 p.m. by emailing your interest to Ashley Perry,

Date: Saturday, 12/7/13

Time: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Class Limit: 20

Location: Hope Lutheran Church
Conference Room, 364 E. Barstow,
NE corner of Fresno/Barstow

Appropriate Age: 18 and above
Not Advised: Under 18 and the newly bereaved (under 1 year)
