We all have a role to play in suicide prevention - it could be as simple as signing up to the Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) training.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer - the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
It's a one-hour online course available from our website for just $10, which will help you recognise warning signs for suicide and help others in need. In fact, QPR training will provide you with:
- knowledge and skills to identify warning signs that someone may be suicidal
- confidence to talk to them about suicidal thoughts
- connect them with professional care.
