QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer — the three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. It is the most widely taught gatekeeper training in the United States that teaches best practices in suicide prevention.
QPR gatekeeper training is intended for community members 18 years and older and professionals including health care workers, first responders, law enforcement, educators, clergy, bankers, lawyers and more! Certificate of Attendance for professional Continuing Ed.
