The QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 3 to 4 -hour educational program designed to teach “gatekeepers” (those who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide) the warning signs of suicide and how to responsibly respond by following three steps:
- Question the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide
- Persuade the person to seek and accept help
- Refer the person to appropriate resources
A QPR Gatekeeper Training is free and open to all providers, schools, organizations, and those who live and work in the community. QPR, guided by certified trainers, is a program designed for everyone to learn what can be done to prevent suicide. In short, the more people trained in QPR, the more lives should be saved.
