QPR Training 

The QPR 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.

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. This training is presented in partnership with CSI’s Prevent Suicide Fond du Lac. For more information on the Prevent Suicide mission and CSI please visit:
