QPR is a 1 1/2 hour training that teaches participants the warning signs for suicide and the three-step QPR (Question, Persuade and Refer) method. Participants will learn how to recognize someone at risk for suicide, learn intervention skills and learn about referral resources within PSD and the Fort Collins community.
Participants will learn how to listen, how to identify at least three warning signs of suicide and how to ask someone about their potential suicide intent, as well as how to assist a person at risk of suicide. Participants will understand suicide as a national and local public health concern and learn myths and facts related to suicide.
