QPR Training

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college students. 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 ninety minute workshop that will provide information and interesting interactive experiences on the "Question, Persuade, Refer" technique. QPR is not a form of counseling or treatment. It is intended to offer hope through positive action.

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.
