Opportunities for Students
Are you interested in learning how to recognize and respond to a suicidal crisis? Become a QPR Gatekeeper! QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer-- the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help prevent a suicide. People trained in QPR learn about the causes of suicidal behavior, how to recognize the warning signs that someone needs help, and how to connect people with appropriate mental health care. Learn more about QPR and other bystander intervention trainings on the Center for Prevention and Outreach website.
