Upcoming Suicide Intervention Course

Limited Spots Available! We would love for you to join us! QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention. The QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer) Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a brief educational program designed to teach “gatekeepers”–those who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (e.g., parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches, caseworkers, police officers) — the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond by following three steps:
 Question the individual’s desire or intent regarding suicide
 Persuade the person to seek and accept help
 Refer the person to appropriate resources
The 1- to 2-hour training is delivered by certified instructors in person or online, and it covers (1) the epidemiology of suicide and current statistics, as well as myths and misconceptions about suicide and suicide prevention; (2) general warning signs of suicide; and (3) the three target gatekeeper skills (i.e., question, persuade, refer). The training includes a short video that shows interviews with people who have experienced suicide in their families, schools, and neighborhoods, and it provides standardized role-play dialogue for use in a behavioral rehearsal practice session. For participants whose focus is on schools and youth, the training also reviews local rates of students’ suicidal behavior and the school district’s protocol for responding to suicidal students. Once trained, the participants, or gatekeepers, receive a booklet that contains an overview of the didactic presentation and a review of the gatekeeper role. Wallet cards also are distributed for use as a review and resource tool, with prompts to recall the gatekeeper skills emphasized in the training and information about local referral resources.
Although the foundation for the QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is the same for all audiences, the training can be customized for use with specific audiences, with the understanding that fidelity to the core training slides must be maintained and with prior approval by the QPR Institute quality assurance team. In studies reviewed for this summary, the training was delivered to school staff; parents; and clinical providers and nonclinical staff from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
