In the United States, a person commits suicide every 15 minutes and suicide remains the 2nd leading cause of death among college students. The QPR program will help students recognize the warning signs of suicide and teach the QPR method (Question, Persuade, Refer) of suicide prevention. It will also relay common myths/misconceptions about suicide.
