QPR Suicide Prevention Training

Question, Persuade, Refer. Ask a question, save a life. This class provides you with skills to intervene when someone is experiencing a life threatening crisis. It takes courage to overcome our own fears and reach out to those who might need someone. QPR is not a form of counseling or treatment. Rather it is intended to offer hope through positive action. By learning QPR, you will come to recognize the warning signs, clues, and suicidal communications of people in trouble, and gain skills to act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

  • The Waukesha County Public Health department will be providing the following QPR Trainings.  

Trainings can be scheduled for groups.  If you are interested in having a training occur in your organization or group, please call 262-896-8430

Live Well Waukesha County

The 2018 Community Health Improvement Plan and Process (CHIPP) survey found that 70% of adult residents in Waukesha County are overweight or obese, and less than half of them meet recommended nutrition and physical activity goals. Live Well Waukesha County aims to address both of these issues through programming offered through our new "Eat Well" and "Move Well" programs. The overall goals are to:

  • Increase the percent of adults who consume the recommended 3+ vegetables/day from 25% to 30% by the end of 2021
  • Increase the percent of adults who meet the recommended moderate or vigorous activity levels from
    46% to 50% by the end of 2021
  • Reduce the percent of adults who are overweight or obese with a BMI of 25+ from 70+% to 68% by the end of 2021
