Noon - 2 PM In honor of AAWGT’s 10th Anniversary and its mission to educate our members, AAWGT’s Post Grants Evaluation Committee presents this unique Spring Field Trip.
The seminar, led by Alli Holstrom, Anne Arundel County’s Youth Suicide Awareness Chair and Certified QPR Trainer, is graciously being offered free of charge by our 2015 grantee, Anne Arundel County Mental Health Association, Youth Suicide Awareness Program.
QPR is a simple educational program that can teach anyone how to recognize someone experiencing a suicidal ideation or a mental health crisis and how to get a person at risk the help they need. It has been used to train teachers, doctors, nurses, firefighters, police and other professionals who deal with the public. Just as important though is that parents, friends, neighbors, even teens, can learn to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
Participants can expect to learn to:
- Understand the issue of suicide including current data and statistics;
- Recognize the warning signs of suicide; and
- Ask the question of a person at risk and make a positive intervention, access help and save a life.
The session will delve deeply into the issue of youth suicide in Anne Arundel County and discuss findings and recommendations from the recent University of Memphis study. CEU’s are available.
