Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention Training February 2022

QPR-photo-selections_2
Purpose:
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer β€” the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. 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 question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying β€œYes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
Learning Objectives:

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope
  • Know how to get help and save a life
