Question. Persuade. Refer. These are three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide.
QPR Training is an internationally recognized suicide intervention program designed to help you have a conversation with someone having thoughts of suicide.
UBC offers QPR Training for students, staff, and faculty to help them recognize suicide warning signs, approach someone who may be at risk, persuade the person to seek appropriate health services, and connect the person to resources that will help resolve crises.
EVERYONE IS INVITED TO PARTICIPATE
All students, staff, and faculty can participate in a QPR training session at UBC; there are no prerequisites. Training takes place in a group setting and usually takes two hours. While training will help you question, persuade, and refer, you’re not expected to become an expert.
Hosted by UBC Okangan Health and Wellness Counselling.
No fee but pre-registration appreciated!
