QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer)
Would you give an hour to save a life? QPR is 60 minute training that teaches participants warning signs for suicide and the three-step QPR method. Like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in a suicide crisis. Also, like CPR in the Chain of Survival from a life-threatening medical crisis, early recognition of warning signs, early intervention, and early professional assessment and care can save lives. Learn how to ask the right questions and save a life!
