Become a certified Gatekeeper


We can all save lives with QPR

The office of Student Counseling Staff are proud certified QPR instructors who are excitedly bringing this training to our students, faculty, and staff.

The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. Quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.

QPR is a 1.5-2 hour in person training where attendees will be provided with knowledge that will help them recognize someone who is at risk for suicide, intervene with those at risk, and refer to appropriate resources.
