QPR Gatekeeper training
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 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.
Learn How to:
Recognize someone in crisis
Review the risk of suicide
Reach out and offer support
Apply a suicide intervention model
Link people with community resources
