Welcome to the HEI Webinar Series. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold our annual HEI Conference in-person. The HEI Conference was an event many attended to earn CECH for continuing education for CHES certification, professional development, and networking opportunities. We have decided to hold a once monthly CECH opportunity for members to earn CHES credit.
HEI Series: QPR Suicide Prevention Training
Date and time: Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 10:00am - 11:30am
Presented by: Angie Cooke, MS, MEd, Associate Director of Graduate Retention Services, College of Nursing, University of Cincinnati
CECH available: 1 CECH credit
This training will cover the following topics:
- How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
- How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
- The common causes of suicidal behavior
- The warning signs of suicide
- How to get help for someone in crisis
The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession have negatively affected many people's mental health and created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness or substance use disorders. Ongoing and necessary public health measures may expose many people to experiencing situations linked to poor mental health outcomes, such as isolation and job loss. The QPR (Question Persuade Refer) Suicide Prevention Program aims to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. This is a program much like CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. The QPR program meets the requirements for the National Registry of Evidence-Based Practices and Policies (NREPP) and has been approved by the Best Practices National Registry, Section III: Adherence to Standards, which is required training by many states.
- Participants will identify suicide warning signs and factors that can lead to suicide ideation.
- Participants will be trained on suicide prevention and be able to describe the three steps of suicide prevention.
- Participants will be able to explain importance of suicide education and intervention in preventing death by suicide.
This event is FREE. However, if you would like to earn CECH credits towards your CHES certification, please register and pay. Those who are requesting CECH credits will need to complete an evaluation at the end of the session. This will be emailed to those who have registered and paid.
