QPR Training

Lawyers often encounter people in emotional pain, and the profession itself has elevated rates of depression, substance use, and suicide. QPR is the most widely taught suicide prevention gatekeeper training in the world. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Participants will become more comfortable and confident in broaching the sensitive subject of suicide, receive support resources, and have the opportunity to practice and discuss skills learned. Each session is limited to 25 participants. The session will conclude with recent research regarding lawyer and judicial well-being. Attendees will receive access to online support materials to reinforce your learning, complete a pre- and post-test about your confidence in discussing the topic of suicide, and can print a certificate of completion at the end of the course.

The training is free and approved for up to 1.6 hours of MCLE credit, including ethics.
