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
