QPR Training

Have you ever wanted to learn more about helping a friend who is struggling with suicidal thoughts? The Student Counseling Center can train you in QPR.

Suicide can be seen as a journey of increasing hopelessness that starts with an idea and ends with an act. Anybody with the right skills can disrupt this journey. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer, and using QPR skills will provide hope to those in crisis. The Student Counseling Center is currently offering FREE official QPR training. Trainees will be certified as QPR Gatekeepers and will learn how to intervene and get help for someone in a suicidal crisis.

Check back soon for a full list of Fall 2017 training sessions. Training is open to ALL faculty, staff, and students. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Amanda Wheeler from the Student Counseling Center.
