Learn QPR to Prevent Suicide!

QPR, which stands for Question, Persuade and Refer, is an emergency intervention to help a person who is considering suicide. Anyone who is in a position to recognize the signs that someone may be considering suicide is encouraged to sign up for a QPR training. In a one hour workshop, individuals learn to recognize warning signs, what questions to ask and how to offer hope and help. The workshop is designed for parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, caseworkers, firefighters and many others.

QPR trainings are offered at no cost in San Diego.To sign up or to schedule a group workshop, visit www.sdchip.org, or contact Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP) at lcayanan@sdchip.org; (858) 609-7971.
