Event Details

How can you tell if someone you know is considering suicide? What can you say to them if they are? QPR Gatekeeper training is an internationally recognized program offered through MHG that prepares people for that kind of situation. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, Refer – the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just like CPR, QPR is a life-saving emergency response to someone in crisis, and is the most widely taught suicide intervention training in the world.

Also like CPR, more people trained in QPR results in more crises averted in our community. With this in mind, Mental Health Greensboro is holding several special free public sessions of QPR Gatekeeper Certification Training this September, in recognition of Suicide Prevention Month. Registration is free, use the form below.


MHG offers suicide prevention instruction and resources through QPR, a nationally recognized best-practices program offering training in suicide/ crisis aversion. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisers, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

Registration Fee: None

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

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