QPR Suicide Prevention Workshop

Wednesday, September 13

Additional Information

Research shows that early detection of mental health issues gives a much greater prognosis for recovery and that early intervention can sometimes be critical. The Counseling Center believes that no student who wants or needs help should be left to struggle alone. In Summer 2008, the Counseling Center launched a major suicide prevention initiative for the UNCW community, "Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR)," a nationally-recognized suicide prevention training program.

The goal is to train as many people on campus as possible in QPR. Much like CPR, QPR is an easy process that can be applied by everyone, including people outside of mental health professions. QPR provides direction as to how to Question a person about suicidal thoughts, Persuade them to get help and Refer the person for help.
