I have successfully completed the QPR self-study course and am now a Certified QPR Instructor! I am excited to begin presenting the QPR framework very soon. For those unfamiliar, QPR stands for Question, Pursuade, and Refer. The QPR Gatekeeper training provides everyday people with the skills to recognize a person in a suicidal crisis and how to connect with with appropriate resources, treatment, and offer hope.
Several months ago I launched a GoFundMe campaign aimed at raising $2,000 to provide the course materials for participants. So far I’ve reached $500, which provides the course materials to 250 participants, wow that is awesome! If I reach my $2,000 goal, I can then provide the training and course materials to 1,000 participants! Every $10 connects 5 participants with the course materials. If you are able, please donate $10!
Once I deplete my GoFundMe resources I will charge $10 per participant for the training and course materials, so please help me reach my $2,000 goal so I can reach as many people as possible.
I plan to conduct QPR training sessions for groups of 20-25 people.QPR training would be great for church groups, leadership teams, and really anyone! If you are interested in hosting a training session, please let me know.
