QPR LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention Training – in Partnership with the Mental Health Resource Center

QPR LGBTQ+ Suicide Prevention Training – in Partnership with the Mental Health Resource Center
June 13, 2024
2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how in a short timeframe to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

The Trevor Project’s 2023 U.S. National Survey on the Mental Health of LGBTQ Young People found that 41% of LGBTQ+ young people seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, including roughly half of transgender and nonbinary youth. LGBTQ+ young people are not inherently prone to suicide risk because of their sexual orientation or gender identity but rather placed at higher risk because of how they are mistreated and stigmatized in society. Join Prevention First’s Mental Health and Youth Prevention Resource Centers during Pride Month for a virtual QPR training with a special focus on preventing suicide among LGBTQ+ folks.
