What is QPR Training?
As someone who may be in the best possible position to prevent suicide—parent, caregiver, teacher, coach, mentor–you will find that QPR is designed to help you save a life.
- Question – a person about suicide
- Persuade – someone to get help
- Refer – someone to appropriate resources
•QPR is NOT a form of counseling or treatment.
•QPR is intended to offer hope through positive action.
•By learning QPR, you will come to recognize warning signs, clues, and suicidal communication so you can identify people in trouble and act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.
•Independent researchers and federal agencies have suggested that QPR intervention could be useful in far broader applications – recognizing a person who needs professional help but is not suicidal.
As CPR is for the HEART, QPR is for the MIND!
Now more than ever, knowing the basics of suicide prevention and how to have the conversation about it can help those struggling with isolation and fear.
This training has been adapted to a teleconference format.
