General Meeting June 27, 2017 Deanna Murray QPR Training
Deanna Murray, LMSW, MHSA
We are delighted to have one of our NAMI Metro members who is a nationally certified instructor for QPR, a CPR-equivalent for mental health emergencies. QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) defines the three action steps when suicide warning signs are observed. The QPR Institute has been listed as an evidence-based practice in the National Register of Evidence-based Practices and Policies. NAMI Metro is delighted that Deanna will present on this suicide prevention program. You will take away from this presentation the three steps that anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. You don’t want to miss this all important presentation and training.
