QPR Training

Open to anyone wanting to be informed about suicide prevention

The QPR Institute created the QPR training module to “save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training.”

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer, and these 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

According to the QPR Institute, “just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help 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 help.”

As part of the Changemaker program, Brave Step is pleased to offer this training free of charge and led by QPR-certified instructor Lynn Hennighausen.
