QPR Suicide Prevention Training – Question, Persuade, and Refer – three steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR can help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicidal crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to additional help.
Are you a Gatekeeper?
You may be. Because you may be the best person, at the right time and place, to recognize an individual in crisis and to prevent a suicide. People considering suicide often feel isolated and alone and may feel that no one can help them or understand. QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper training will help you recognize people in crisis and connect them with others who can provide appropriate care. Each year thousands of people, like you, are saying “yes” to saving the life of a friend, family member, co-worker.
What is QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training?
Like CPR, QPR Suicide Prevention Training is a process that anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. Think of it this way: QPR is to suicide what CPR is to heart attacks, a simple educational program that teaches community members how to recognize a mental health emergency and how to get a person the help he or she needs.
