Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives.

QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world.

What is a "Gatekeeper"?

According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers can be anyone but may 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.

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper, participants will learn to:

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

Program Objectives
After minimum training, QPR participants should be able to:

  • Recognize someone at risk for suicide,
  • Intervene with those at risk; and,
  • Refer them to an appropriate resource

The training only takes 60 minutes and certification remains active for 2 years.
