QPR: Youth Suicide Prevention

Thursday, August 22, 2024
01:00 PM - 02:30 PM
This is a Virtual Classroom event.
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 help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn, in a short timeframe, how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. 
Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for teens and young adults, ages 10-34 (CDC, 2023). 22% of high school students reported having seriously considered suicide and 10% attempted suicide in the past year (CDC, 2023). Join Prevention First for a virtual QPR training with a focus on preventing suicide among young people.
