Suicide Awareness Training – Question Persuade Refer (QPR)

QPR is a suicide prevention training that teaches someone to recognise the warning signs and suicidal communications of people in trouble, and gain skills to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

Description

QPR training is a short course that equips participants with the skills needed to recognise individuals who may be contemplating suicide, so that they can respond in a supportive manner and refer them to professional help.

QPR is an excellent tool for people who want to become alert to the dangers of suicide in a convenient time frame.

Participants will receive a workbook, wallet card and information handouts. Participants receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
