Loss of a loved one, friend, neighbor, colleague, or other acquaintance to suicide is devastating.  Importantly, there is hope and help for persons contemplating suicide, and you can help others in need.  QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer -- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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. 

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper, trainees receive background on the prevalence of suicide and learn to:

  • recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • know how to offer hope
  • know how to get help and save a life
