QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. It teaches individuals warning signs and risk factors for suicide, how to recognize someone who might be having thoughts of suicide, how to persuade that individual to get help, and how to refer them for help. Training is about an hour to an hour and a half. It is a basic training intended for caregivers and anyone in the community. Like CPR, it is basic suicide first aid. It is intended to help prevent the immediate risk of someone acting on his/her thoughts of suicide.
