SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERS
A gatekeeper can be anyone 16 years or older. Students, educators, doctors, and bus drivers can all be trained Gatekeepers. If you are around people this is a valuable training as suicide prevention is everybody’s business.
WHY QPR FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION GATEKEEPERS?

Gatekeepers are given information that is easy to understand and reinforced by a QPR booklet and card complete with warning signs, methods to encourage a person to get help and a list of resources available in your community.
