Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR) Three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide.

Suicide is the third leading cause of death for New Jersey youth between 10 and 24 years of age. The signs of crisis are all around us. Health factors such as mental health disorders and/or a substance use disorder are the most significant risk factors for suicidal behaviors. In addition, environmental factors such as stressful life events and access to lethal means like firearms or drugs can increase risk of suicide.

We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives.

We are partnering to prevent suicide. We can all save lives.
