8. Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) – Suicide Intervention Training

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in college students, and is preventable. Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR) is a 90-minute training facilitated by a mental health professional and certified educator. Students and staff are often in excellent positions to prevent suicide by being able to refer someone who may need help. QPR is designed to empower bystanders to help someone who may be considering suicide. QPR consists of three important life-saving skills:

  • 1. Question…a person about suicide,
  • 2. Persuade…the person to get help,
  • 3. Refer…the person to the appropriate resources

To schedule the QPR workshop, or learn more about suicide prevention programs on campus, please contact Darany Hoang.
