Suicide prevention trainings are organized regularly by the Suicide Prevention office and Project Tomorrow Montana (formerly Western Montana Suicide Prevention Initiative). Three different courses are offered:
- QPR Gatekeeper: QPR stands for "Question, Persuade, Refer," the three steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. This 1.5 hour training teaches you how to recognize the signs of suicide and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.
- SafeTALK: This half-day training prepares anyone ages 15 and older to become alert to signs of suicidal thinking and provides tools and practice on how to intervene.
- ASIST: This in-depth two-day training prepares caregivers of all kinds to provide suicide first-aid and interventions.
Many classes are open to the public. Classes can also be arranged to fit the needs and schedule of your group. Please call 406-258-3883 to schedule a class!
