QPR (Question Persuade Refer)

Suicide Prevention Training

Course Description:

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – a two hour training that teaches 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.   QPR’s mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.  The signs of crisis are all around us.  We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.  Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives.
