How will QPR training help?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – 3 simple steps that 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. Each year thousands of Americans like you are saying “yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, family member, or neighbor. QPR can be learned in as little as one hour.
Who needs to know QPR?
Suicidal thoughts are common. Suicidal acts, threats and attempts are less common, but much more frequent than most people realize. Suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency and the eighth leading cause of death in Utah. Suicidal thinking, feeling and behavior are not rare; it is very likely you know someone who has been, or is, thinking about suicide.
So who needs to know QPR? Everyone!
Training will be led by Alyssa Mitchell and colleagues from the Summit County Health Department.
