Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR Training)

What is QPR Training?

Mental Health Emergency Trainings

Just as CPR helps anyone save a life in a medical emergency, QPR is a simple educational program that teaches ordinary citizens how to recognize a mental health emergency and get a person at-risk the help they need.

Learn To Save A Life with Certified QPR Gatekeepers

In QPR trainings, certified QPR Gatekeeper Instructors teach the three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide: Question, Persuade, and Refer. In just 90 minutes, you can learn to save a life.

  • Educating participants on the myths and facts associated with suicide
