QPR Training

Question, Persuade, Refer.

What is QPR?

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

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 friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

Those who are trained are educated about the known warning signs of a suicide crisis, including expressions of hopelessness, depression, giving away prized possessions, talking about suicide, securing lethal means and then taught how to respond.
