Suicide Prevention Training – QPR



Ask a Question & Save a Life

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer. This emergency mental health gatekeeper training intervention teaches lay and professional gatekeepers to recognize and respond positively to someone exhibiting suicide warning signs and behaviors.

Like CPR, QPR uses a “chain of survival” approach in which the gatekeeper learns to recognize early suicide warning signs. Then they can:

1. Question their meaning to determine suicide intent or desire
2. Persuade the person to accept or seek help
3. Refer the person to appropriate resources


Key Components of QPR Training

  • How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may 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
