Student Wellness and Support
All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to consider completing QPR Training. The course takes only an hour. January is a great time to set aside an hour to complete this training that may help you to save a life one day.
Question, Persuade and Refer, or QPR, is an evidence-based emergency mental health intervention for people at risk of suicide. The goal of QPR is to recognize a suicide crisis, interrupt it and direct the person to appropriate care.
Like CPR, QPR works to increase an at-risk individual's chance of survival. People trained in QPR are taught to recognize the warning signs of suicide, which include depression, expressions of hopelessness, and talk of suicide. They are then taught how to respond.
