QPR Suicide Prevention Training
November 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Presented by: BreeAnn Silcox, Utah Health Dept
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 1-2 hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond.
According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a strategic position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.
Gatekeepers can be anyone, such as parents, friends, partners, masters, slaves, neighbors, teachers, clergy, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide. Each year thousands of people are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
