The Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC) hosted another great QPR Suicide Prevention workshop this past week, with both new and alumni Home Health Aides participating. The trainees came to learn about the tools they will need, as Community Gatekeepers, to respond effectively to the mental health and suicide crises that their older adult clients might experience. We thank them for their positive energy, their great questions and, of course, their ever- present humor. Thanks to them, the ripples of hope will continue to spread throughout our community, saving lives.

The IIIC is planning more workshops so please contact Iarla if you would like to learn more by phoning 617-542-7654, ext. 32 or by emailing
