Become a QPR Gatekeeper and help prevent suicide
Benefits & Employee Wellness is proud to offer QPR Gatekeeper Training to our campus community. QPR is the most widely taught suicide prevention training in the world and is proven effective. Let us organize a training session for your department or group so you can help others in need.
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer. Like CPR, QPR is an emergency response protocol to help someone in crisis. These are three simple, but powerful steps. Learn how to use them properly and you can save a life from suicide.
QPR training participants will learn from a team of Certified QPR Gatekeeper Instructors:
- How to use the Question, Persuade, Refer technique
- Common suicide myths and facts
- Warning signs and clues that someone is considering suicide
- Tips for approaching the topic of suicide
- How to get a person considering suicide the help they need
