Suicide awareness in the workplace can save lives

Share article:

A person dies by suicide every 11 minutes.

It is one of the top 10 killers of all people ages 10 to 64, according to the Center for Disease Control.

And the simplest way to prevent it is to talk about it.

The QPR Institute has a mission of reducing suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training with its Question-Persuade-Refer methodology.

The Aspiritech leadership team has committed to each of us completing this certification and learning the right steps to take when suicidal ideation is expressed in the workplace — and in our lives.

We know firsthand how much it matters. Autistic adults, like the ones we employ here, are six times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers.

It is our hope at Aspiritech that we can be each other’s keepers, supporters, and advocates.

We hope you join us.

You can learn more about how to prevent suicide by reading this infographic as well as by visiting the QPR Institute’s resources and the CDC website.
