Lifelines: A Comprehensive Suicide Awareness and Responsiveness Program for Teens, Schools and Parents
QPR – Question, Presuade, Refer
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour.

(Website)Safe Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe (SafeTALK) is a two-and-a-half to three-hour training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources.
