Community-wide suicide prevention training, free and open to the public on May 17, 12:00 - 2:00 at the Acton Senior Center. Riverside Trauma Center will be leading a suicide prevention workshop entitled QPR - QUESTION, PERSUADE, AND REFER. QPR 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. 

There will be some focus on the needs of seniors but the training will be relevant to all community members. This is done in partnership with Acton Senior Center.
