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


  • This training is offered at no cost
  • This training is provided at a reduced cost thanks to funding raised by FailSafe for Life


  • All participants age 16 and older  are welcome to attend  
  • Pre-registration is required, as space is limited
