Parent QPR Training Program
Question Persuade Respond (QPR) for Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Program is a unique training opportunity designed to assist participants with recognizing a crisis and warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. The QPR method was developed specifically to detect and respond to anyone emitting suicide warning signs and has been applied as a universal intervention for anyone experiencing distress. CCS has utilized the QPR Programming to train teachers, social workers, and counselors as a method for suicide prevention.
Participants in the QPR for Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Program must be the parent/guardian of a student attending Carmel Clay Schools. Participants will be required to sign-up for the program. Up to 20 participants will be selected per course offering. Vendor discussions and/or product promotions will not be supported in the program.

Each participant will learn and practice the Question, Persuade, and Referral method and will be provided with resources and supports available in the community. Each participant will receive a QPR Gatekeeper Certificate upon successful completion of the training.
