QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 2-hour online, educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers).
Our QPR Gatekeeper course is taught online by certified QPR gatekeeper instructors, in a clear, concise format using the Zoom video conferencing platform. The course takes 2 hours to complete.
After minimum training, QPR participants should be able to:
- Recognize someone at risk for suicide,
- Intervene with those at risk; and,
- Refer them to an appropriate resource.
- How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
- How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
- The common causes of suicidal behavior
- The warning signs of suicide
- How to get help for someone in crisis
After signing up for the training, participants will be able to download the workshop manual:
- QPR booklet
Participants will attend a two-hour online training (participants who leave early will not be QPR certified).
Before the training, participants will view a short introductory video, complete a short pre-survey regarding their knowledge about suicide, and register for the online training session.
During the online training, participants will practice the QPR role play with other participants in a breakout room session.
Following the training, students are required to complete a post survey and course evaluation in order to receive a certificate of completion.
