8. Suicide Prevention Program
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:
Question…a person about suicide,
Persuade…the person to get help,
Refer…the person to the appropriate resources
This training program is limited to 30 participants.
