Suicide Awareness

QUESTION, PERSUADE, AND REFER (QPR) TRAINING

WHAT IS QPR?
QPR is an internationally-recognized suicide prevention program that stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer. QPR Gatekeeper Training provides the knowledge needed to reach out to a friend, peer, student, family member, or colleague who may be experiencing suicidality and connect them to resources that will help.

QPR Gatekeepers are those in a position to recognize the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Once trained, Gatekeepers will have the knowledge needed to assist someone in distress by helping them seek the appropriate mental health services.
