Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)

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. The objective of this concise but informative training is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. This course is open to anyone age 16 and older.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA)

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a groundbreaking, internationally recognized evidence-based training program committed to empowering individuals to identify, understand and respond to those in mental health and substance abuse crisis.

Similar to how a person learns “first aid” to help those in a medical crisis, MHFA teaches participants how to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illness and substance use disorders. This training provides the skills needed to initially support someone who may be experiencing a crisis or developing a mental health or substance use problem. MHFA takes the fear and hesitation out of starting conversations about mental health and substance use problems by improving understanding and providing an action plan to safely identify and address potential disorders.
