Certified QPR Gatekeeper Training: Suicide Prevention (15 Wellness Points)*
Tuesday, July 11, 2023
2:00 PM-3:30 PM
How do you recognize the early warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide? What are the myths? What are some tips for asking questions about suicide? How can you offer hope and get help for someone in crisis? Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) gatekeeper training is a nationally recognized mental health intervention that is much like CPR. It is designed to teach anyone the lifesaving skills of recognizing warning signs of suicide, knowing what to say to someone who is believed to be at risk for suicide and referring a person in crisis to campus and community resources. This initiative was started by the Counseling Center, and has broadened to a larger cross disciplinary partnership across the University to create a network of certified QPR gatekeeper instructors and QPR trained gatekeepers who believe that all members of the Dragon community can learn these skills and help save a life. At the end of the 90 minute QPR gatekeeper training, guests will be QPR gatekeeper certified and will receive a certificate, which remains active for two years.
