The Clearfield-Jefferson Mental Health/Mental  Retardation  Program has changed our name to Community Connections of Clearfield/Jefferson Counties. The name Community Connections is fitting because we help individuals in our community connect with the services they need when they need them, within our community and without stigma. The name change also coincides with the movement to replace the term Mental Retardation (MR) with Intellectual Disability (ID). Community Connections remains focused on the empowerment and transformation to a recovery based system of care.

Clearfield Jefferson Community Support Team
and the Clearfield-Jefferson Suicide Prevention Team

                                                What is QPR?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to save the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour

                          As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper, you will learn to:
                                * recognize the warning signs of suicide
                                * know how to offer hope
                                * know how to get help and save a life
         RSVP is requested. To reserve a seat or if you have questions
