Suicide Prevention QPR Workshop: Part 2
Question, Persuade, and Refer — QPR. Licensed counsellor and trainer Raymond Lee employed QPR in our suicide prevention workshop, hosted by the good people at Sedunia of EPiC this January. Participants came in with a variety of concerns, many relating their own experiences with loved ones who had been affected by suicide, or needing to support someone they know is struggling but not knowing how. There was a palpable sense of frustration — we know that this is a serious concern today, and in the Subang Jaya area, suicide rates have been historically one of the highest in the country due to the concentration of youths and university-age young adults in the area.
