The Q, Question, P, persuade, and R, refer mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.

You will gain skills that enable you to support yourself and your neighbors, friends, and families that surround you. You will learn about available resources and where to go for help.
