Stand Together to Prevent Suicide!

 Ask a question, save a life:  Question, Persuade, Refer. 

 If you are in crisis: Text “KIND” to 741741 or call: 800-273-TALK

 

·         In Colorado, suicide is the LEADING cause of death for young people, especially for girls age 12-14.

 

·         Warning Signs: direct/indirect threats, attempts, substance abuse, sudden changes in behavior, talking about dying, giving away possessions, making final arrangements, purchasing guns, pills,…

 

·         Just like CPR, QPR saves lives by training you how to recognize warning signs of suicide.  It is a Free 90 minute training that offers continuing education credits and a nationally recognized certificate.  Contact Kimberly Pratt: 970-313-1089/970-313-1160
