Farmer Veteran Coalition - Question, Persuade Refer (QPR)
Time & Location
Sep 08, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM CDT
About the event
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the three simple steps 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. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:
- – Recognize the warning signs of suicide
- – Know how to offer hope
- – Know how to get help and save a life
Length of training one hour and 15 minutes or more with Q & A.
