Suicidal thoughts are common. Suicidal acts, threats, and attempts are less common but much more frequent than most people realize. Suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency and the 11th leading cause of death in America. If you interact with people as part of your service to Jesus and our community, you very likely will have firsthand contact with suicidal people. Much like CPR or the Heimlich Maneuver, the fundamentals of QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) are easily learned and may save a life. On Saturday morning, February 2, from 9:00 to noon, Powell Church will host a free training by Amy Dolinky, the East Tennessee Regional Director of the Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network. Amy presents essential information in an interesting and engaging presentation that you won't want to miss! QPR is intended to teach those who are in a position to recognize the warning signs, clues, and suicidal communications of people in trouble to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.
