QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer and is a nationally recognized form of suicide prevention training. Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a potential suicide crisis, how to engage with the person, and what to do. QPR classes are 60-90 minutes in length.
Anyone can benefit from being QPR trained and helping those around them. This training is ideal for coaches, teachers, ministers, and others who interact with people on a regular basis.
