QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer

Help save a life with three simple steps.

Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year, thousands of Americans like you are saying "yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, family member, or neighbor.

Life & Work Connections and Campus Health bring QPR Gatekeeper Training to the University of Arizona. Learn more about QPR from the QPR Institute.

QPR Gatekeeper Training

QPR Gatekeeper Training sessions are open to any interested staff members, faculty, and students. In this training, participants learn how to recognize suicidal behavior in co-workers, employees, family, and friends, to ask important questions, and get them to help.

Along with regularly scheduled training, training can be brought to your department or classroom and customized between 90 minutes and 120 minutes in length.
