The Kentucky Center for School Safety has partnered with the Kentucky Division of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and the Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group to provide QPR training that is being implemented as the state model for suicide prevention. QPR is an acronym for Question, Persuade, & Refer. This model teaches persons to recognize the risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs associated with depression, suicidal ideation and suicidal behavior. The goal is for QPR to be as commonly taught as CPR, which is supported by the goal of having one person in every family trained in QPR.

Quality suicide prevention training to diverse audiences 2. The four fundamental components of suicidal communication 3. The three simple steps to help prevent a death by suicide (Question, Persuade, Refer) 4. The role of depression and mental illness 5. How to replace fear with positive action 6.
