WHO? All are welcome!
WHAT? QPR stands for “Question, Persuade, and Refer.” This training is made available by the Alabama Suicide Prevention and Resources Coalition (ASPARC) with the primary goal of educating Alabama residents on suicidal warning signs, in addition to providing practical suicide prevention strategies and resources to effectively support people who are struggling with suicidal ideation.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death across all age groups and the 2nd leading cause of death among children and young adults who are 10-34 years old. Someone dies by suicide every 11 minutes in the U.S. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020).
If you are alarmed by these statistics and want to learn how you can help, we have coordinated with the QPR Team to bring you this fantastic training that will leave you equipped with valuable information and practical strategies to assist in suicide prevention efforts!
