Community Education Programs We Offer

QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer)

  • 1 hour, ages 15+
  • Virtual or In-Person

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


  • 3 hours, ages 15+
  • In-Person

SafeTALK is a half-day suicide prevention training. Participants learn to recognize thoughts of suicide, how to engage someone with thoughts of suicide, and how to connect them to resources for further support while applying the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe.
