QPR Training

As a part of our 2022-2023 strategic plan to develop a mental health workgroup, the Healthy Minds workgroup has established a goal of bringing regular QPR training to the Whitewater area.

W3 supports QPR training in partnership with Walworth County Health and Human Services.

Defining QPR

"As CPR is for the heart, QPR is for the mind"

 

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world.
