Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is a self-guided online training program that aims to teach people to recognise the warning signs of a suicide crises and how to respond following three simple steps: Question, Persuade, and Refer.
Many of us are in regular contact with people who are at risk of suicide without knowing it. People who are experiencing suicidal thoughts may not be able to communicate their distress directly, and so warning signs may be missed or misinterpreted.
Whilst there are many training programs that deliver skills in mental health awareness, Question-Persuade Refer (QPR) has the most and strongest evidence for building skills to help with a suicidal crisis.
