Event description
Free QPR (Question Persuade Refer) training to learn the warning signs for suicide, how to offer hope, and how to seek help to save a life.

About this Event

Question. Persuade. Refer.

Three simple steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide.

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world. In just 90 minutes, you can learn how to save a life from suicide.

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR Suicide Prevention learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone for help.

QPR Suicide Prevention is a nationally certified program taught by certified trainers. Those completing the course will receive a certificate. The course focuses on training individuals to be “Gatekeepers” – someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.

Gatekeepers can be anyone but 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.

KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:

  • 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
  • Join BStrong Together and Mandy Burbank from AMITA Behavioral Health for this life-saving training.
