People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicidal crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. It is a 2-hour course that will increase knowledge and comfort around having a conversation about suicidal thoughts. It is beneficial for anyone who comes in contact with other people. In 2017, 0.6% adults aged 18 and over in the United States attempted suicide at least once during the year. When the question was asked of high school aged youth, the rate of at least one attempt in the year was 7.9%. It is estimated that 4% of adults and 17% of high school aged youth experience suicidal thoughts in a year. We need to know how to talk about about this. Contact us to schedule an on-site training.
