QPR for suicide prevention: you can save a life!

QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer), like CPR, is an emergency response that saves lives.

In this 90-minute session, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize someone at risk for suicide
  • Ask about potential suicidal intent
  • Listen and persuade someone to seek help
  • Access professional services on campus and in the community

Participants will have an opportunity to practice QPR skills and there will be time for Q&A at the end of the session.

This workshop is open to all BCIT students, staff, faculty and administrators, and is available to specific groups/schools/departments by request.

Please contact Judy Bushnell for more information.
