Local organization to host suicide prevention training

Over 700 suicides happen in Wisconsin annually and a Sturgeon Bay organization is working hard to change that. Just like CPR saves thousands of lives a, QPR, also known as Question, Persuade, and Refer, is an educational program with hopes of having a similar impact for those hoping to prevent suicide. Cheryl Wilson started Prevent Suicide Door County: Nathan Wilson Coalition after her son killed himself about a decade ago. She says they have seen an increase in attendance for the training as more people have gotten comfortable talking about it.

Prevent Suicide Door County will host the QPR training from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Rock Island Room of Community Foundation Square on May 1st. You can find additional details for the free training online with this story.
