Program Description


Like CPR, QPR relies on trained citizen action to save lives from suicide. QPR and CPR share similar similarities. They both function as part of a ‘Chain or Survival’ in which trained citizens can respond to a life-threatening event, whether it is a suicidal crisis or a heart attack.

QPR training prepares everyone to be a GATEKEEPER who in this one-hour training class will learn:

  • The warning signs of mental/emotional distress
  • The most effective questions to ask the person in distress
  • The most trusted probing and listening skills
  • How and where to refer to a mental health professional

QPR is a well researched method of interrupting the advance of mental distress which can lead to self-harm. Learn more about the QPR Institute at www.QPRInstitute.com.
