As the leading cause of death amongst Australians between the ages of 15 and 49, suicide has a devastating impact on individuals, families, workplaces, and entire communities. Community awareness, connections, and resilience are critical to suicide prevention, recognising the important role of the wider population in building mentally healthy communities that are well-networked and resourceful.
Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) training will help you to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence to:
- identify suicide warning signs
- facilitate supportive conversations surrounding suicide
- refer those at risk of suicide towards professional help.
Delivered within a convenient 3-hour time frame, QPR is an excellent tool for those who want to become alert to the dangers of suicide, develop the confidence to talk about suicidal thoughts, and be able to connect people at risk to professional care.
