QPR Suicide Prevention Training

Feb 24, 2021

Description:

QPR is a nationally recognized suicide prevention program. Participants obtain certification as a QPR Gatekeeper. Up to 2 CEs available. Intended for residents of Indiana.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer, a life-saving strategy outlining 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

Similar to how those trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis. These “gatekeepers” learn how to question, persuade and refer someone to get the appropriate help they need. Each year thousands of caring people, like yourself, say “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor by becoming Certified QPR Gatekeepers.

Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, caseworkers, and firefighters, among many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope
  • Know how to get help and save a life

Since this is a virtual presentation, participants will be provided a link and code to access the accompanying QPR booklet and class resources. Links to suicide resources also will be available after registration and during the presentation.

Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate as a Certified QPR Gatekeeper. For those who need it, this training has been approved for up to 2.5 hours of continuing education credit through the QPR Institute.

This training is for individuals ages 18+
