Suicide is the most preventable cause of death. Yet, it is the second leading cause of death among college students. After completing this training, you will become a “QPR Gatekeeper” trained to:
• recognize suicidal signs,
• ask the right questions,
• persuade someone who is thinking about suicide to get help, and
• know how to refer for help.
While suicidal people rarely reach out directly for professional help themselves, almost all send indirect communications and clues that they are in distress and considering suicide. This training will be helpful for you in your job and in your personal life.
When you apply QPR, you plant the seeds of hope. Applying QPR brings a personal crisis out of the dark and into the light. QPR is a positive, hopeful technique, and it is hope, more than anything else, that helps reduce the risk of premature death by suicide.
