In Other Words says
FREE Community Workshop (a donation of any amount can be given at the event). Please RSVP ahead so we can plan for the appropriate number of people.

Everyone is invited to join us for this conversation based workshop discussing issues surrounding mental health and suicide prevention. Learn self care tips and get training on spotting warning signs of struggle to help your family, friends, co-workers, and community.

You will also receive a certified training in suicide prevention called QPR (details below) that you can use to spot warning signs and start potentially life saving conversations.

ABOUT QPR TRAINING (part of workshop): QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

ABOUT LIVE AGAIN:
Live Again is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all about starting healthy conversations that strengthen communities, increase wellness, and reduce suicides. Someone in America dies by suicide every 13 minutes. For each suicide, at least 6 people are intimately affected by the loss. Live Again wants to flip that statistic. What if for every person struggling there were 6 people in their lives ready and willing to start a healthy conversation that leads to healing and ongoing support. Through workshops, resources, and events we will be able to reach communities (ex. workplaces, schools, churches). It starts with you and your community! Visit our website at liveagain.org.
