Suicide Prevention Education Series: QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention

Monday, September 23, 2019

Title: QPR: Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention Workshop Overview: QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. The QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is designed to teach lay and professional "gatekeepers" how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer a person at risk of suicide (e.g., family members, ministers, doctors, nurses, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers, etc.). Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR can save the lives of people experiencing a suicidal crisis.
