    Helped me save a family member

    I have a close family member who was suicidal. I didn't know how to help. This training by Dr. Leger helped me understand how to help him. He's alive today thanks to this training.

    This training saves lives

    In my 32 plus years as a law enforcement officer, l have had the misfortune to witness first hand how suicide can affect everyone it touches- family, friends, and first responders alike. The QPR course taught by Dr. Bart Leger gives all who attend the tools to do just that- prevent it.

    If I try to help someone who is suicidal, will I be legally liable?

    If you are a healthcare professional or certified or licensed counselor, the answer is “yes” – especially if you are already in a professional relationship with the person.
