Become Proficient in QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer)

QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) is a suicide prevention training for participants to be able to recognize the warning signs of suicide and question, persuade, and refer people at risk for suicide for help.

On Wednesday, March 27, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., a QPR training will be provided by Sarah Herr from Innovo Detox. The training will be held at the United Lutheran Seminary – Aberly Room 206 in Gettysburg. Sarah has a passion for suicide prevention and takes pride in providing this training to further ensure the community has the steps necessary to help save a life from suicide. Just as people who are trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver 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 the appropriate help. Each year, thousands of Americans like you are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. The QPR Institute believes that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. The training will be approximately 2 hours long and
includes time for questions and comments.
