In a 2014 study, attorneys had the fourth highest rate of suicide compared to all other occupations.  We also routinely deal with clients who are susceptible to suicide as they are going through some of the most trying times of their lives.  Just as people trained in CPR or the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives a year, QPR training (Question, Persuade, & Refer) can give you the skills to help save the life of a struggling client or colleague. QPR is designed to help you identify and interrupt the crisis and direct that person to proper care. QPR is a 90 minute training taught by instructors certified by the QPR institute and tailored to specific audiences.

  • QPR’s (Question, Persuade, Refer) mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors by providing a practical and proven suicide training.  The training is meant to empower all people, regardless of background or clinical experience, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
  • Sadly, from 2006 to 2016 683 individuals completed suicide in Boulder Broomfield Counties.  For every death by suicide the research says they were 25 additional attempts. 
  • Just as people are trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to provide lifesaving assistance.
  • A strong response to the early warning signs of a pending suicide can help countless people avoid unnecessary suffering, grief, and loss.  Most people thinking about suicide are suffering from an undiagnosed and/or untreated mental illness or substance abuse disorder for which excellent treatments exist. 
  • QPR is considered a gatekeeping training (again like First AID and CPR), requires no skill or background to learn,  to assist those in need connect with professional help.
