Jackson County Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers recently hosted a training program aimed at suicide prevention. The training, called QPR training, or Question, Persuade, and Refer, is centered on reducing suicidal behaviors and saving lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. Kyle Nosbisch and Karla Gearing from Together For Jackson County Kids presented the information to 13 participants. Interfaith Program Director Lori Chown says they wanted to offer this critical training to their church partners, staff, and volunteers because knowing how to communicate with a person in a crisis is the first step in helping them.
