 QPR Suicide Prevention Training  


The Coalition offers free QPR training for the Cape & Islands community.  

We can lead a training for your organization, business or group. 

QPR is a one and a half hour training designed for the general audience.


Question, Persuade, and Refer are 3 simple steps that ANYONE (parents, friends, volunteers, ministers, nurses, supervisors, firefighters, bartenders, others) can learn to help prevent suicide. QPR teaches how to recognize a mental health emergency and how to get a person-at-risk connected to the help they need.
