Suicide prevention training
Question. Persuade. Refer. (QPR) training is designed to provide everyday people with three simple steps to help save a life from suicide.
Are you QPR ready?
Key components of this training include the warning signs of suicide, how to ask the suicide question, common myths and misconceptions about suicide, and how to persuade someone to stay alive. The content can bring up strong emotions and be confronting.
QPR training is not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide, as it is not a therapy or support group, rather an education session to learn how to support others.
Remember, your own health and wellbeing is a priority - participate when you are ready and in your own time. If you need support, services are available:
- Sunraysia Mallee, Preventing suicide in our community | community resource card
- Connect Benalla | community resource card
- Lifeline 13 14 11.
