Mental Health First Aid & QPR Certification
Midwest Chaplain Association's Fall Summit will provide those in attendance with expert training and certification in Mental Health First Aid and QPR (Question, Pursuade, Refer). This training will deepen our understanding of how to approach and care for someone living with mental illness. It will also provide us an avenue of knowing how to minister to an individual who is contemplating suicide.
