Question, Persuade, and Refer: Three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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! Learn how to start the conversation.
Who should take QPR? ANYONE! Including parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, coaches, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, EMS personnel, and anyone who is in a place to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide. Suicide touches all of us!
This training is presented by South Central CT Substance Abuse Council, with support from the United Way of Meriden and Wallingford.
