Oregon has one of the highest rates of suicide in the country. So Deschutes County periodically holds free suicide prevention training to help teach people the signs that people may be in trouble. Cheryl Emerson teaches the class that focuses on the QPR model. It stands for question, persuade and refer. “So the question part is ask the person: are you thinking of suicide? Once you understand that issue, than persuade them to get the help available and then refer them to that help.” This session is free. It will be at the Bend Park and Recreation District Office Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
