QPR Suicide Prevention is a nationally certified program taught by certified trainers. Those completing the course will receive a certificate. The course focuses on training individuals to be “Gatekeepers” – someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.
Gatekeepers can be anyone but include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, 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.
This customizable 2 to 3 hour course is available to individuals and community groups at no charge as part of WellSpan Philhaven’s commitment to improving the mental health and resilience of our community.
WellSpan Philhaven is pleased to offer the nationally certified QPR suicide prevention training program to the community at no cost.
