Question. Persuade. Refer
Most of us want to help but are afraid of talking about suicide out of fear of making things worse. But, knowing what to do can help save lives and reduce the rise in suicide.
QPR Training by Dr. Tai Strachan-Louidor of The Counseling Collaborative offers tools to those in the community who are able to respond to someone struggling with suicidal thoughts. This training is an opportunity to learn more about the warning signs and clues to be aware of so that you can take action to try to prevent possible suicide. QPR was created and designed to help you recognize someone who may be considering suicide. The elements of QPR training are:
Question… the person about suicide
Persuade… the person to seek help about their thoughts and feelings
Refer…. to professional resources so the person can be seen by an appropriate resource.
The fundamentals are easy to learn and may help save the life of someone you know, work with, or serve in your community.
