QPR TRAINING for suicide prevention: “Question, Persuade, Refer”

Ask a Question, save a life

QPR provides trainees with an effective, evidence-based emergency response to mental health crises, much like CPR for physical emergencies.

Riveredge offers free QPR Training to help people learn these specific, immediately applicable life-saving skills while experiencing the benefits of spending time outside. Becoming QPR trained is a positive way to take action in light of the mental health crisis that exists in our communities. The full training is 1.5 hours. The first hour is the evidence-based QPR training. The last 30 mins includes a nature walk to practice coping skills and benefit from the healing impact of time outdoors.

Beginning February 15th, 2023, Riveredge offers QPR from 5:30-7:00 pm every third Thursday of the month. Check our events calendar to see dates. 

We also provide free on-site training to organizations, non-profits, churches, or companies that are located in or serve Washington County. We can work together to fit your schedule! Please contact Sharon Cross at 262-375-2715 or scross@riveredge.us to schedule a training for your organization.
