Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) Training

Imagine Institute for Learning is certified by the QPR Institute to provide suicide prevention training.  QPR teaches gatekeepers the warning signs of a suicide crisis, how to offer hope through positive action and ultimately, how to assist in saving a life.  The three basic steps for this training workshop include:

  • Question – the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide;
  • Persuade – the person to seek and accept help and support;
  • Refer – the person to the appropriate resources.

This three-hour training workshop aligns with the goals and objectives outlined by Living Hope – A Community Plan to Prevent Suicide in Edmonton.  This initiative was created for Edmontonians to talk openly about suicide and to reduce the stigma that is attached.  The plan is to provide better awareness and knowledge to service providers, frontline workers and others so that they are trained to detect signs of suicidality and equipped to refer the appropriate assistance and effective supports.
