AB Cares is bringing 3 community-wide suicide prevention trainings, free and open to the public.

The suicide prevention workshop entitled QPR - QUESTION, PERSUADE, AND REFER - teaches 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life. Just as people trained in CPR 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 for help.

Training 1: Monday, March 25, 2019, 7-8:30 pm, at the Acton Public Safety Building (371 Main St, Acton)

Training 2: Thursday, April 25, 2019, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Acton Human Services Facility and Senior Center (30 Sudbury Road, Rear, Acton)

Training 3: Thursday, May 30, 2019, 10 am - 12 noon, at the Acton Memorial Library (486 Main St, Acton)

The trainings will be relevant to all community members. Join us in saying YES to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling or neighbor.
