Training Overview Description

The Statewide Suicide Prevention Council, the Alaska Mental Health Trust and the Juneau Suicide Prevention Council hosted a QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) suicide prevention training on World Suicide Prevention Day in September 10, 2020.

Event-specific Details

QPR training, also known as gatekeeper training, teaches people without professional mental health backgrounds to recognize the signs that someone may be considering suicide, establish a dialogue, and guide the person to seek professional help. It is not a substitute for professional assistance, but it can be a critical tool to save lives - and it’s something that anyone can learn to do.
