1N5 hosted a Question. Persuade. Refer. (QPR) Suicide Prevention Training session with 13 ambassadors from Guiding Light. Since 2014 Guiding Light has been committed to making a positive impact in the lives of Cincinnati youth. Through various programs, they provide positive role models and teach relationship skills to our youth.
QPR Suicide Prevention Training is an emergency mental health intervention program modeled after CPR education. QPR seeks to educate about warning signs of suicide crisis and how to respond appropriately. After our session we were able to increase participant knowledge on subjects such as the common symptoms of depression and how to persuade someone to get help by 65 percent. Additionally, 100 percent of participants said they are now more willing to ask someone directly about suicide and more willing to take action to prevent a suicide. We are proud to share these fantastic results!
