QPR

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

What is QPR Training?

Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognise the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

QPR training will provide you with:

  • knowledge and skills to identify warning signs that someone may be suicidal
  • confidence to talk to them about suicidal thoughts
  • connect them with professional care

Lifeline South Coast currently offers the one hour online QPR training program in partnership with the Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative.

QPR Face-to-Face Sessions

QPR is a short 2.5 hour presentation aimed at increasing suicide awareness. Virtually anyone aged 18 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become a QPR-trained helper and learn the skills to help save a life from suicide. In fact almost anyone in the community will benefit from learning the skills of QPR.

Because it only takes 2.5 hours to learn, QPR is an excellent tool for people who want to become alert to the dangers of suicide in a convenient time frame. Professionals, workplaces, as well as members of the community at large have all found great value in QPR over the years.
