TELL is thrilled to announce we are one of the organisations being supported by Mitsubishi Chuo & Community Chest Japan community grants to support people of foreign roots across Japan in 2024.
TELL has received funding to train all our Lifeline volunteer support workers and those trained in 2024 in QPR gatekeeper suicide prevention skills. QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world. QPR stands for Question, Persuade & Refer and is a 2-hour evidence-based training program created by the QPR Institute designed to teach people how to recognises and identify the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond.
TELL would like to acknowledge and gratefully thank Mitsubishi Chuo and Community Chest Japan for their ongoing support and for helping TELL rollout QPR training to Japan. Just like people are trained in CPR, which saves thousands of lives every year, learning QPR skills is something we hope everyone will undertake as saving lives and helping everyone make it to tomorrow is a community effort.
TELL would also like to thank Akai Hane Kyodo Bokinkai for the generous grant in aid of youth mental health in 2023-2024 as part of their program to “support people with roots in foreign countries with activities to create connections.” With this grant, we will be able to run a number of workshops and trainings targeting youth and those supporting youth to share mental health resources, provide education, and strengthen connections in the international community.
