QPR is an educational program that teaches community members how to recognize that a person may be experiencing thoughts of suicide and offer first aid until more experienced help is available. Participants will learn about warning signs, risk factors, common myths about suicide, and a three-step suicide prevention first aid action plan. Participants will receive a booklet and wallet card with summary information at the end of the training. This training offers veteran-specific information that is not provided in other QPR trainings.
By the end of this training, you will know how:
- to recognize the early warning signs of suicide
- to ask the person about thoughts of suicide
- to persuade the person to get help
- to refer the person to help
- to offer hope
- to get help and save a life
