QPR: Suicide Prevention Training 
HSHS Sacred Heart & St. Joseph's hospitals' 3D Community Health are host free sessions for anyone who would like to learn how to recognize the warning signs that someone may be thinking about suicide, and how to help them. The training is called "Question, Persuade, Refer" - or "QPR." Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save a life.

Classes are held on an ongoing basis. Groups can also request a class.
