Question. Persuade. Refer.

Say "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. 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.

Intended audience: Adults
Format: 60 to 90-minute program


  • Designed to teach laypeople and professionals about the warning signs of a suicide crisis and appropriate responses.
  • Can be offered as a stand-alone program or as a breakout session at larger conferences.
  • QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is listed in the National Registry of Evidence-based Practices and Policies.
