QPR Suicide Prevention Training gives people of any age and background the tools needed to save a life in crisis. QPR Gatekeeper training is a practical and empowering course to educate our community about suicide and the resources available for those that need help in crisis.
Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, the QPR program intends to teach individuals how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, and provides guidelines on how to QUESTION a person about potential suicidal thoughts, PERSUADE them to seek help, and REFER them to appropriate professional services.
Parents, teachers, classmates, nurses, bartenders, friends, family, QPR training is for everyday people. Our next QPR course at Mental Health Greensboro occurs on November 26th at 1 pm. We encourage anyone and everyone to take this short class and gain the skills that can help save a life in crisis.
