Knowing where to start and how to get help can be extremely challenging and frustrating which can lead to an individual not seeking appropriate services. We want to provide you with a website that we feel is very informative, educational, useful and helpful in quickly identifying mental health and substance abuse services and support that is available.
Suicide Prevention/Crisis Efforts
Suicide prevention is all of our business, and together as a strong community, we can help those who are in the most need. Are you interested in displaying our crisis prevention cards at your location? Or do you work with youth or adults that you would like to share our cards with? Our crisis cards promote our 24-hour, seven day a week crisis and suicide prevention hotline.
For more information about statewide Indiana suicide prevention and loss team initiatives, the ISPN page.
In an effort to create awareness of suicide prevention, Southwestern Healthcare, Inc. hosts, free to our community, QPR suicide prevention training sessions.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer – three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help.
If you or your organization, church or small group is interested in hosting a free one hour course on QPR, call (812) 436-4221.
