QPR Training

Practical and proven suicide prevention training

What is QPR Training?

The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know. 

Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught Gatekeeper training in the world. 

Key Components covered in Training:

  • How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal 
  • How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide 
  • The common causes of suicidal behavior 
  • The warning signs of suicide 
  • How to get help for someone in crisis 


QPR Gatekeeper Training is 2 hours long. Re-certification is recommended at least every two years, but re-training can be done at any time.
