What you’ll learn:
Recognize the warning signs of suicide
Know how to offer hope
Know how to get help and save a life
Has someone you know died by suicide? Do you want to possibly prevent it from happening again?
We're going to discuss a topic most people don't want to talk about.
Just like our heroes who take a CPR class to learn how to save a life during an accident or incident . . .this event will educate you to save a life from suicide.
Let's join hearts on January 23, 2021 and gain insight on suicide prevention.
This event was created for those who want to end suicide.
Why YOU should become a gatekeeper of hope?
What is a Gatekeeper of hope?
A gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001),
Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
Because suicides happen in families – where emergency interventions are more likely to take place — we believe that at least one person per family unit should be trained in QPR.
Loved the vulnerability and care that Misty and her team has for educating the community about suicide.
I took this class to hopefully help someone choose to live. This class helped me to identify where I can possibly help others.
Doing my part to support the community by taking a suicide prevention class. Glad I found Hope Gatekeepers.
ASK and PREVENT™ is a campaign inspired to teach the community about suicide prevention.
Would you ask a question if it meant you could possibly save someone’s life?
From what we can see, you are working to better your life and those around you. We think it's safe to say that you would ask a question if it meant saving someone’s life—whether it was a loved one or a stranger.
We have this in common. We both want a better life for ourselves and those around us.
We are the type of people who will go the extra mile to make the world a better place.
Research shows people who are having thoughts of suicide feel relief when someone asks them in a caring way. Findings suggest acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation.—https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org
That’s why Hope Gatekeepers will ask questions to prevent someone from dying by suicide.
We're hoping you will join us in this journey of ending suicide.
