Suicide is the leading cause of death for 15-44-year-olds.
In 2020, we lost a total of 3,139 Australians to suicide.
Lives will be saved if people are trained and equipped to identify suicide warning signs and engage with someone who is suicidal. Suicide is preventable.
The Church has a key role to play in proclaiming a message of hope in Jesus to those who are feeling hopeless, in keeping people safe and in connecting them to professional help.
QPR Suicide Prevention Training is an emergency suicide intervention technique that provides the skills to identify warning signs of suicide, instils confidence to speak to a suicidal person, and equips participants with the tools to connect people to professional care.
This session considers the theology of mental health and suicide and includes time for questions and case studies.
