The Counseling Center is offering QPR—Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training to all Homewood faculty and staff. The program will teach ways to identify suicidal risk and three straightforward steps that can be used to intervene: Question, Persuade, and Refer (QPR). Faculty and staff members are in a key position to identify students at risk and assist them in getting the help they need. This training will raise awareness about suicide in college students, increase comfort level in dealing with this important issue, and help make our campus safer.
The 90-minute QPR training will be offered on:
- Thursday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., Sherwood Room, Levering Hall

If you would like to schedule a QPR workshop for your department, Counseling Center staff will come to you and your team for the training. Submit your request online via the Counseling Center website.
