QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
“To save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.”

Training for individuals is offered the 2nd Wednesday of the Month, 10:00 AM, Now Online! Departments and organizations may request a private training. Contact Nikita Robinson, M.Ed., LPC at email@example.com for questions.
