Training Description: This evidence-based training takes 2 hours and is for gatekeepers to learn how to help someone who might be considering suicide. Gatekeepers are people who, during the regular course of their lives, have contact with a certain population who might be at risk for suicide.

QPR teaches how to recognize the warning signs, clues, and suicidal communications of people in trouble so they can act vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy. It is modeled after CPR:  spend an hour and learn how to save a life.

Objectives: Participants will be able to...

  • Describe the prevalence, incidence, and common myths around suicide.
  • List the risk factors and warning signs of self-injury and suicide.
  • Explain how to identify and approach someone in mental health distress.
  • Summarize how to persuade someone in mental health distress to access professional help, and what those resources are in the local community.
