QPR: What is it?

Question, Persuade, Refer is a best practice curriculum designed to teach the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of people in trouble. It trains GATEKEEPERS to ACT vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.

A QPR Gatekeeper is anyone trained to recognize a suicide crisis and, because of their training, knows how and where to find help. 

Gatekeeper Training takes just one hour, plus questions and answers, and is taught in a format that is clear and concise. Gatekeepers are given information that is easy to understand and reinforced by a QPR booklet and card, complete with warning signs, methods to encourage a person to get help and a list of resources available in your community.

This training is limited to 50 total participants. There is no cost for the course, but your attendance is expected upon registration.
