UA’s Suicide Awareness Week
Sponsored by Counseling Center

QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention
QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer, three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. QPR is the most widely taught gatekeeper training program in the United States, and more than one million adults have been trained in classroom settings in more than 48 states. Typically QPR is available to faculty, staff and students, by request of the Counseling Center. However during UA’s Suicide Awareness Week, the Counseling Center will be offering eight QPR trainings at the Ferguson Center, with reservations through Tix. Additional requests for gatekeeper training may be made by going to the Counseling Center website, https://counseling.sa.ua.edu/programs/outreach-resources/outreach-program-request-form/, then complete the program request form and indicate that the topic you are requesting is QPR gatekeeper training. We believe that a caring and responsive community is essential in addressing this important issue, and that we all have a role in suicide prevention. If you have questions or need more information, you may contact Holly Prewitt, at the Counseling Center.
