Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)
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.
In these 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.
Training Audience & Goals
The more people trained in QPR, the more lives are saved. This can be viewed as a bystander-intervention program, but teams such as teachers, coaches, social service providers, company leadership, and church groups can benefit from getting this training.
Goals of QPR Gatekeeper Training include:
- Educating participants on the myths and facts associated with suicide
- The warning signs of suicide and contributing causes
- How to Question, Persuade, and Refer someone who may be suicidal
- Sharing resources available to help someone in crisis
