Shine the Light: Presentation and QPR Training
Throughout his career, Seamus Kelleher has battled depression, anxiety, and an addiction to alcohol. This has helped him become the motivational speaker that he is today with audiences ranging from medical students to corporate executives to high school students.
In his "Shine the Light" presentation, he uses his extraordinary guitar playing an uncanny ability to engage his audience, to tell a compelling and often hilarious story. He will also discuss concrete strategies for those who are struggling. Shine the Light is a message of hope, compassion, and understanding that needs to be heard now more than ever.
QPR (Question-Persuade-Refer) is an internationally recognized suicide prevention protocol. This 2 hour training will teach participants how to help someone who is in crisis. Participants will receive a QPR Gatekeeper Certificate upon completion of this highly interactive training session. QPR Gatekeepers learn how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, know how to offer hope, and know how to get help to save a life.
