The signs of crises are all around us… we just need to be able to recognize and respond to them. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis. The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. QPR is a 90-minute, live-facilitated training intended to offer hope through positive action.

QPR is ideal for non-clinical professionals (e.g., case managers, peers, QRT teams), undergraduate or graduate students, first responders, community members, or anyone without a behavioral healthcare background that wants to learn more about how they can support people in crisis.

This is an interactive training that requires attendees to have their cameras on throughout. Please do not register if you are not able to commit to attending for the full scheduled time with your camera on.

Due to the experiential nature of this training as well as QPR guidelines, there are limited seats available for each class.
