Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college students, and this tragic statistic is no exception at Stephen F. Austin. The good news is that suicide is a highly preventable tragedy when individuals in the community are aware of the signs of suicidal behavior and know how to respond appropriately.
QPR is a one and 1/2 hour workshop that will provide information and interesting interactive experiences on “Questioning, Persuading, and Referring” techniques. QPR is not a form of counseling or treatment. It is intended to offer hope through positive action. QPR is recommended for groups of 20 participants or less.
Upon completion, each participant will receive certification as a “Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper.” Much like CPR, the fundamentals of QPR are easily learned. And like CPR, the application of QPR may save a life.
