The QPR Gatekeeper Training is a suicide prevention training that teaches three simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life:
Question, Persuade, and Refer. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver 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 help. Each year thousands of Americans save the lives of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. The QPR Institute strives to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. They believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
Our first two sessions will be for gatekeeper youth-serving audiences, offered virtually on Dec. 12th, 2022 from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm and again from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm, with more sessions to come.
We’ll also be offering two adult gatekeeper classes on Tuesday, Jan. 3rd, 2023 from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm and 5:30 pm-7:00 pm, with more sessions to come.
