From: Hokie Wellness

Question, Persuade, Refer: Ask a Questions, Save a Life will be offered on Tuesday, Oct. 1, from 12-1 p.m. in room 2470 at the North End Center.

The person most likely to prevent someone from taking their life is someone they likely already know (not a health professional). Research shows that prior to making an attempt, 90% of people in a suicidal crisis will give some kind of warning of their crisis/intent to those around them.

QPR provides participants with the tools to recognize and prevent suicide. Registration is required.
