CAPS, in collaboration with Human Resources' GoUSF and Health Promotion Services, offers a free training called QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) Gatekeeper Certification. The mission of QPR is "to save lives and reduce suicidal behaviors by providing innovative, practical, and proven suicide prevention training. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know."
Participants in QPR trainings at USF have found it valuable in increasing their knowledge and skills around suicide prevention:
"This is important training that everyone should do."
"This has made a major impact on how I will operate in these types of situations moving forward."
"This training allowed me to become more comfortable with a subject, suicide, that isn't the easiest to talk about."
If you and/or members of your organization are interested in learning more about suicide prevention, QPR trainers are available to schedule a 1.5-hour QPR Gatekeeper Certification training session via Zoom. The training includes a lecture, videos, and interactive role-play with discussion. Click here to schedule a QPR training for yourself or your group. For questions, contact Stephanie McGrath, Psy.D.
