In first-aid people are trained to be first responders. In QPR, people are trained on specifically what to do when you a person admits that they are feeling suicidal. Many people simply do not know what to do – anymore than they would know what to do if they had not received first aid training.
Suicide is a huge problem in the state of Utah and everyone pitching in to solve the problem is the way to go. The more people trained in QPR, the more impact it will have on our state’s suicide rate. Much more importantly, we can stop burying friends and loved ones. As they say in the training, “suicide is the most preventable form of death” and now you can receive this training free of charge!
