The Jefferson Center is offering two FREE QPR trainings.
QPR is a 90 minute gatekeeper training that can be customized to fit your audience. 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 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. Those who attend will learn to:
- Recognize the warning signs of suicide
- Know how to offer hope
- Know how to get help and save a life
This training is open to any community members working with youth ages 10-24.
