Free QPR Gatekeeper Training Opportunities

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer – 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. QPR consists of three life-saving skills: recognize the warning signs of suicide; offer hope; get help and save a life.

Online QPR Gatekeeper training generally takes about 60 minutes to complete, though you are encouraged to proceed at your own pace.

Everyone can benefit from the life-saving skills gained in QPR Gatekeeper training. A gatekeeper is anyone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide. In short…we can all be gatekeepers!
