LEARN THE SIGNS
SAVE A LIFE
What is QPR?
QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer - the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.
Those trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year.
People trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
Each year, thousands of Americans are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
QPR can be learned in our Gatekeeper Course in as little as one hour.

What is a gatekeeper?
According to the Surgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide.
Gatekeepers can be anyone. But they can be parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

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.
