QUESTION, PERSUADE & REFER (QPR)
QPR is an educational program that teaches community members how to recognize that a person may be experiencing thoughts of suicide and offer first aid until more experienced help is available. Participants will learn about warning signs, risk factors, common myths about suicide and a three step suicide prevention first aid action plan. Participants will receive a booklet and wallet card with summary information at the end of the training.
We can come to your organization, business, community group, place of worship, or other gathering and provide an approximately two-hour QPR training session free of charge.
By the end of this training, you will know how:
- to recognize the early warning signs of suicide
- to ask the person about thoughts of suicide
- to persuade the person to get help
- to refer the person to help
- to offer hope
- to get help and save a life
This course is available in English and Spanish. The training is for everyone aged 18 or over.
