QPR Training

Dec 06, 2023

Event Time: (1:00-2:30)

Virtual Event (Zoom)

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer: the three simple moves anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

In this training, community members will learn:

  • How to identify the warning signs and risk factors of suicide.
  • How to ask the suicide question and persuade a suicidal person not to end their life.
  • How to appropriately refer a suicidal person to behavioral healthcare professionals.

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to help someone in crisis seek the support they need.

We can all save lives
The QPR 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.

Note: This 90-minute QPR Gatekeeper Training does not serve as the First Responder QPR Instructor – prerequisite training. The QPR Institute will provide that information.
