QPR is a suicide prevention training program that stands for ‘Question, Persuade and Refer’. You will learn three simple steps that can help save a life of a family, friend or community member from suicide.

People considering suicide often feel isolated and alone and may feel that no one can help them or understand their pain. Recognizing the warning signs of suicide and learning the skills to help save a life is something that everyone can learn. Just as people trained in CPR 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.
