QPR—Question, Persuade, Refer—training is designed to
provide non-mental health professionals, such as faculty and
staff, with the skills to identify, talk with, support and refer a
potentially suicidal student to appropriate resources for help.
The training covers the SLCC Student Suicide Prevention
Protocol, basic statistics on suicide rates, myths and facts
about suicide, verbal clues and warning signs of suicide, and
the three basic intervention skills of Question, Persuade, Refer.
QPR is an empirically supported suicide-prevention approach
and is listed as a “best practice” by the Suicide Prevention
Resource Center. Participants receive a complimentary
booklet containing information presented during the training.
