QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. The mission of QPR is to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. QPR will train people to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. Quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.

This training is presented by Abbe Edgecombe from SCIP in partnership with Region V Systems. SCIP is a statewide program designed to support student mental, emotional and behavioral health. Edgecombe coordinates SCIP for schools in Lincoln and Lancaster County.

Please Note: This training is open to both adults and middle and high school students. However, students must be logged in with a parent/guardian to attend.
