Question. Persuade. Refer. Three steps anyone can learn to prevent suicide. Suicide claims the lives of almost 2,000 Pennsylvanians each year (according to the latest statistics) —an average of five (5) lives each day. Nationally, suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth ages 11-24; but in Bucks County, suicide is the second leading cause of death for this age group. Join us to learn how you can help. 

QPR is a free, two-hour long training that helps people understand and recognize when someone is going through a mental health crisis.  QPR teaches how to recognize some of the clues, warning signs, and suicidal communications of someone who is in trouble.  QPR is not a form of counseling or treatment - it is intended to offer hope through positive action, and give people the skills to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

Bucks County is proud to report that over 4,000 people in our community have been trained as QPR Gatekeepers, who are merchants of hope - and hope helps prevent suicides.
