What:

Q.P.R. stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – the three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. The Q.P.R. mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. Q.P.R. Training reinforces that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
After completion of Q.P.R. Training, participants will gain the following knowledge:

  • 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 Question, Persuade, and Refer someone who may be suicidal
  • How to get help for someone in crisis

Q.P.R. meets the requirements for listing in the National Registry of Evidence-based Practices and Policies (NREPP) and has been approved by the Best Practices National Registry, Section III: Adherence to Standards, which is required training by many states.

Why:

Suicide is now the second leading cause of death among young people ages 10-24. Every 12 minutes someone in the U.S. dies by suicide, and over 90% of those who die from suicide have an undiagnosed or untreated mental health disorder. The CDC estimates that for every completed suicide, there are 25 attempts, and that the prevalence of suicidal thoughts, planning, and attempts is significantly higher among adults aged 18-29 than among adults 30 and older. When someone in crisis is identified and guided to receive help, 80% -90% of people that seek treatment for depression are treated successfully using therapy and/or medication. QPR Training allows those who are on the front-lines of student interaction to be able to intervene and possibly change the course for person in crisis.
