Workshops for Faculty and Staff
QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention
QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer), like CPR, does not require formal counselling or medical training to be effective. All members of the BCIT community can make a difference and help save a life.
In this 90 minute session, you will learn how to:
- Recognize someone at risk for suicide
- Ask about potential suicidal intent
- Listen and persuade someone to seek help
- Access professional services on campus and in the community
When you apply QPR, you plant the seed of hope. Hope helps prevent suicide.
This workshop is open to all BCIT students, staff, faculty and administrators, and is available to specific groups/schools/departments by request.
