QPR-Question. Persuade. Refer. Training

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 (11:00 am-12:00 pm)

QPR is used to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. It is believed that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. 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. According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

What is slowing our team down? We will look at three “virtues” that are essential for us to be effective, and for every team to thrive. These three virtues are the essential ingredients we must focus on, and master. Find out the dynamics which will allow your team to thrive and for you to reach new goals.
