QPR Training (Question, Persuage, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention

*QPR is open to Tri-C employees and students who will be in the same training session*

The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation presents QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention. QPR is an educational program designed to teach lay and professional "gatekeepers" the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers). The process follows three steps: (1) Question the individual's desire or intent regarding suicide, (2) Persuade the person to seek and accept help, and (3) Refer the person to appropriate resources. Trainees receive a QPR booklet and wallet card as a review and resource tool that includes local referral resources.

Program objectives: After minimum training, QPR participants should be able to:
1.     Recognize someone at risk for suicide,
2.    Intervene with those at risk; and,
3.    Refer them to an appropriate resource.
