Classified Staff Received QPR Training

This was the first phase of our process to ultimately train all staff in our district suicide prevention/intervention process.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer and uses the “chain of survival” approach for recognizing and responding appropriately to suicidal warning signs and behaviors.

Training includes questioning at-risk individuals in order to determine suicide intent/desire, persuading a person to agree to seek help, and referring a person to appropriate resources.
