Volunteer

There is nothing more rewarding than giving back! By volunteering with Please Live, you can help us make a lasting impact on teenagers in Central Pennsylvania.

Educate

We believe most fears associated with mental health are due to not being educated. Find resources here for yourself, a friend, or your child. Being educated means being prepared for the twists and turns life can throw at you or a loved one.

QPR Training | Question, Persuade, Refer

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer – three steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR or the Heimlich Manuever 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. Contact Us to set up a training.
