QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, 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. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper course in as little as one hour.||Franklin||Mental Health Association of Franklin and Fulton Counties||Mental Health Association of Franklin and Fulton Counties|

Even if there is no immediate danger, the Veterans Crisis Line is here for you. Crisis feels different for everybody and can stem from a wide range of situations.

Some Veterans have difficulty with their relationships or the transition back to civilian life.
Whatever’s got you down - chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, anger, or even homelessness - a Veterans Crisis Line responder can provide support, day or night.||Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration||Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration |
