QPR (Question. Persuade. Refer.) is a training for faculty, staff, and students in how to talk to someone who is experiencing mental distress or suicidal thoughts. You will be trained in identifying risk factors, suicide warning signs, how to ask about suicide, persuade some towards hope, and how to refer them to appropriate help and resources. QPR is not counseling or treatment. It is a way to offer hope through positive action and knowledge. If you have a group or department who are interested in receiving the free training, please contact Jenny Stephens, the suicide prevention grant coordinator, at 989.964-7078 or firstname.lastname@example.org
