All About Connections - QPR Trainings

     Suicide has increased in our country over the past 20 years. The NOCC is working hard to inform and educate as many people as possible in our community about suicide prevention.

According to the CDC, in 2021  

  • 12.3 million Americans thought about suicide 

  • 3.5 million planned an attempt 

  • 1.7 million people attempted suicide. 

     This tells us that it is very likely that we may encounter individuals who are in crisis as we move about our day to day life. It has been proven that if

more people know the signs of mental health crisis and know how to respond, less people in our country would lose their lives to suicide. 

     QPR Suicide prevention was created to inform and educate non mental health professionals about warning signs of suicide ideation as well as what to do when someone around you may be in crisis. 

     NOCC schedules community trainings for anyone over 14 years old. Information about this training can be found on our website, or if you would like to schedule your own training at your business or organization, please contact Jill McCollum at
