This training is appropriate for parents and community members or anyone who has contact with individuals at risk whether in a professional, personal, or informal capacity as a gatekeeper. A gatekeeper's role is to be aware of persons in their community, recognize any risk factors or warning signs that may be present, connect with that individual, and establish connections that reinforce the necessary safety and support for this person.
