Make a Difference with QPR Suicide Prevention Training
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a fellow student, friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
Become a QPR Gatekeeper
Suicide can be seen as a journey of increasing hopelessness that starts with an idea and ends with an act. Anybody with the right skills can disrupt this journey. QPR Gatekeeper training will teach you how to recognize warning signs for suicide, how to approach someone who feels suicidal, and how (and where) to refer that person for help.
As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:
- Recognize the warning signs of suicide.
- Know how to offer hope.
- Know how to get help and save a life.
