What is QPR?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 3 simple steps that 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.
In 90 Minutes, You Can Become a Gatekeeper
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. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.
As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:
[if !supportLists]v [endif]recognize the warning signs of suicide
[if !supportLists]v [endif]know how to offer hope
[if !supportLists]v [endif]know how to get help and save a life
QPR is recognized by Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations as a “best practices” model and was selected by the American Psychiatric Association’s Task Force on Patient Safety as an “exemplary suicide risk reduction approach.”
