About this Event
NOTE: this session is geared toward youth suicide prevention and intended for youth ages 13 & up and their families.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer — the 3 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.
KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:
- How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who could be suicidal
- How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
- The common causes of suicidal behavior
- The warning signs of suicide
- How to get help for someone in crisis
