Event Details

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

This workshop is ideal for professionals and the general public. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

 

Workshop Objectives

After attending this workshop you will:

  • Understand suicide as a national and local public health problem,
  • Understand the common myths and facts surrounding suicidal behavior,
  • Recognize and identify at least three suicide warning signs,
  • Describe the relationships of untreated clinical depression and other mental health illnesses and substance abuse to increased suicide risk,
  • Recognize and identify three risk factors for suicide,
  • Recognize and identify three protective factors against suicide,
  • Describe community and national resources and how to access them.
