QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
LEARN HOW TO
Recognize someone in crisis
Review the risk of suicide
Reach out and offer support
Apply a suicide intervention model
Link people with community resources
All participants age 16 and older are welcome to attend

"It (ASIST) delivered as promised. I didn’t think I would come away with any useful tools, but learned a wealth of knowledge. Also, because of the way it was taught, I feel confident that I have the new skills and also that I will not forget them. The trainers were excellent. Thank you!" - Attendee
"This is an excellent training for anyone who works with people. All people, all ages, all socio-economic levels, can be at risk for depression and suicidal thinking. This great training gives you the tools to be able to comfortably engage someone in a conversation that will lead them to get the help they need. Medical professionals, coaches, parents, youth pastors and workers, Scout leaders, teachers, elder caregivers - anyone can learn good skills from this excellent training." - Jan Bassier, Attendee
