What is QPR?

Question, Persuade, Refer, or QPR is a  Suicide Prevention Training designed to increase your ability to recognize suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and to refer the person at-risk to a professional resource. 

Each year, suicide is the second leading cause of death among 18-24 year olds. While there may be no single cause for suicide, there are risk factors that may increase the likelihood of an attempt such as untreated depression and anxiety.

UNCG specific statistics show an alarming increase in depression, anxiety, and stress. A 2020 report is not yet available but an increase can be suspected. QPR will equip individuals to identify warning signs, how to intervene, and where to refer someone who is in crisis.
