WHAT CAN I DO?
As an extension of LifeSpan's partnership with R U OK? - people living intrial site communitiesare being encouraged to complete Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) – an online training program that teaches people to recognise and respond positively to someone who may be exhibiting suicide warning signs and behaviours.
Whilst R U OK? can help provide some tips
on how to have a conversation with someone who’s struggling, supporting someone at high risk of suicide requires some more specific skills.
QPR is a great next step for people who are interested in actively contributing to suicide prevention. It only takes 60 minutes and is available for just $10 for people who live in a participating LifeSpan trial region.
The discounted QPR online gatekeeper program can be accessed below.
