Upcoming Speakers for 2019

June 2019

QPR Gatekeeper Training
Thursday, June 20, 2019

Last month, we talked about suicide. In June, we learn how to save lives. Join us as we welcome Wendy Flanigan, a chair of the Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force, to the NAMI Forum. She will teach us how to save a life using QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer. Three simple steps that may save a life!

QPR Gatekeepers are trained to understand and recognize a mental health crisis. They learn the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide and are given the language to talk about suicide. Using simple QPR steps, gatekeepers will learn how to offer hope and help individuals access appropriate supports.

When: Thursday, June 20, 2019 from 7pm – 8:30pm
Where: Abington Health Center, Warminster Campus
Address: 225 Newtown Rd, Warminster, PA 18974
Map: Get Directions

Trainings are sponsored by Magellan Healthcare and are provided by Bucks County Suicide Prevention Task Force, Bucks County MH/DP and are free to you. Registration is required and allows up to 2 guests.
