Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) is the most widely used and researched suicide gatekeeper program. QPR provides non-mental health clinicians with the tools they need to help someone who is having suicidal thoughts. The training only takes an hour and can literally save a life. Last semester we hosted several open trainings and they were very well attended; thus, we have schedule monthly trainings for the spring on the following dates. I hope everyone can find time to attend a training.
