Become a QPR GatekeeperLearnQPR for Suicide Prevention
QPR is not intended to be a form of counseling or treatment. QPR is intended to offer hope through positive action. QPR is intended to teach those who are in a position to recognize
the warning signs, clues and suicidal communications of people in
trouble to ACT vigorously to prevent a possible tragedy.
SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERSA gatekeeper can be anyone! Students, parents, educators, doctors, and bus drivers
can all be trained Gatekeepers. If you are around people this is a valuable training
as suicide prevention is everybody’s business.
WHY QPR FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERS?QPR gatekeeper training takes just over an hour 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.
