QPR Suicide Prevention Training

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- the three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

Key components:
• How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
• How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
• The common causes of suicidal behavior
• The warning signs of suicide
• How to get help for someone in crisis
