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.

Registration Fee: None
