Illawarra Shoalhaven Region - Organisation

Support your workforce today!

Your staff are well placed to notice when their colleagues are not coping, but would they know what to do?

Give your staff the skills to recognise the warning signs of suicide and confidence to help that person with suicide prevention training.


QPR online training

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer - the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

QPR is an online, evidence-based suicide prevention training which will fit easily into your workplace training schedule and is an affordable way to fulfil your responsibility to protect your staff. 

QPR suicide prevention training will teach people to:

  • Identify warning signs that someone may be thinking about suicide
  • Confidently ask if someone is thinking about suicide
  • Connect them to appropriate support
