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.
According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.
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
