Over two million people worldwide have been trained in Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR), an evidence-based suicide prevention training. Similar to CPR, QPR training provides practical, applicable tools that anyone can use to intervene in a suicide crisis. People who are trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, offer hope, and assist in getting help – they become “gatekeepers” of hope and support for people in crisis. This brief, yet effective intervention leads to safer individuals and communities and more help-seeking behaviors. Everyone is encouraged to learn QPR!
Marion County Health & Human Services and community partners will be hosting FREE, virtual QPR Suicide Prevention Trainings on the 4th Saturday of each month through October from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome! Sign up at https://signup.com/go/CHNhMSi
