QPR Training

QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) is a nationally recognized, evidence-based, suicide awareness training intended to educate the general public about suicide warning signs. QPR Training lasts about 90 minutes, and can be taught to individuals, small groups, and organizations. QPR is not a counseling training, and is not intended to be counseling. Instead, QPR equips the trained individual (a “Gatekeeper”) to feel more capable of recognizing warning signs and know what to do during a potential crisis.

Objectives include:

• Recognize suicide warning signs, and how to take all signs seriously

• Debunk common myths that typically prevent people from inquiring how someone is coping

• Gain valuable questioning tools to speak with someone who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts

• Learn what resources your community has to refer people to when they are identified to be at risk or in need of intervention
