About the Event
QPR Gatekeeper training will help you recognize people in crisis and connect them with others who can provide appropriate care.
Like CPR, QPR is a process that anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. Think of it this way: QPR is to suicide what CPR is to heart attacks, a simple educational program that teaches community members how to recognize a mental health emergency and how to get a person at risk the help he or she needs.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer—the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. The most widely taught gatekeeper training in the world, QPR is designed to help any and everyone learn how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, offer hope, and help save lives. Participants will learn how to intervene with an individual at-risk, persuade them to get help and guide them to the appropriate resources.
This 90 minute training includes an hour of instruction, followed by role-playing exercises, and time for questions and discussion.
