QPR Gatekeeper training arms participants with the knowledge and skills to identify the warning signs of suicide, the myths and facts associated with suicide, and -- most importantly -- to take action and connect a person with thoughts of suicide to life-saving help. This evidence-based program teaches a simple acronym, with participants learning how to Question, Persuade, and Refer someone who may be suicidal.
QPR Gatekeeper training is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to help someone in crisis, including parents, teachers, emergency responders, healthcare providers and members of the public. Knowing how to navigate a crisis involving suicide is also an essential skill for the workplace, alongside physical first aid/CPR training.
Participants will receive a certificate and additional learning materials upon successful completion of the course.
KEY COMPONENTS COVERED IN TRAINING:
- Learn the myths and facts about suicide
- Recognize the warning signs of suicide
- Learn how to ask The Question
- Learn how to "plant seeds of hope"
- Learn how to get help and save a life
The more people trained in suicide prevention, the more lives saved. Don't miss this opportunity to become a lifesaver!
