 QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

According to the CDC, youth suicide attempts soared during the pandemic. Rates of suicide among youth in Black and Brown communities have risen faster than in any other racial/ethnic group in the past two decades.  Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how in a short timeframe to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

In the OEND bonus/add-on training, we will offer a 30-minute training session on “How to Use Naloxone aka “Narcan” which is the medicine that reverses an opioid overdose.

In the training, you will be trained on how to use the Naloxone Nasal Spray during a crisis and given a kit for your organization.  Please see the flyer for additional information.  Once you register for the QPR Training, you will receive an email where you can confirm whether you will attend the bonus training. This training is open to anyone who attends the QPR Training.
